TEACHERS REJECT PROPOSALS OF EDUCATION AUTHORITY. The Herefordshire Teachers and the National Union of Teachers have rejected the proposal to increase the salaries of some of the head teachers made by the Hereford- shiae Education Committee on Saturday last. The Education Committee granted increases of from tl to £4:0 where they considered the Government reports justified such increases, the total increase amounting to XI,232 103.. and in addition to that X70 was added to the salaries of assistant teachers. At a mass meeting of the teachers held at Hereford on Monday a resolution was unani- mously adopted demanding a scale. The resolution read as follows That this meeting of the Herefordshire teachers emphatically declares that the proposals of the Local Education Com- mittee are totally unsatisfactory, and that no solution of the present difficulty can be arrived at which does not provide a scale of salaries satisfactory to the Union and the teachers of the county. This meeting expresses its full confidence in the county association and the executive of the National Union of Teachers, and uphold them in their determination to obtain a scale of adequate salaries. The chief speaker at Monday's meeting was Sir James Yoxall, M.P., secretary of the National Union. Mr W A Nicholls, the local representative of the Union, said the Local Education Authority bad offered only one increase of 140, and that was in respect to the school at Ross. The headmaster formerly received £ 180, which amount was reduced to Y,160 by the Education Committee. Now he had been offered Y,200, which was the biggest salary in the county. Two others were offered an increase of £ 30, but they were nearing the end of their service. Eleven increases of 120 were offered, but the bulk of increments were from £5 to £10 (43 of £10 and 49 of £5). In 60 cases no in- crease at all was suggested. The local authority had not touched the cerlificated assistant teachers and had done nothing for the uncertificated teachers. There was no guarantee whatever that there would be any improvement in the salaries in the future beyond the statement that the position of the teachers would be considered every year. The Union was aiming at a scale of adequate salaries for good service. The teachers, whose notices expire next month, state that the strike will proceed, in which case practically all the schools will be left without teacher. ————— —————.
