A Deadlock. I Teachers and Education Authority I Fail to Agree. The fight between the Herefordshire teachers and the local Education Committee is to continue, negotiations having again broken down on Saturday. The teachers demanded a scale of salaries, so that their remuneration can rise from a minimum to a maximum, but the Education Cbnamittee have definitely refused the request, although they have offered increases anaouating to Y,1,300 per annum, and an annual revision 'n is o ffor, of the salaries as an alternative. This offer, however, the teachers have unanimously declined. Through the intervention of the Bishop of Hereford a conference took place on Satur- day between the Special Committee of the Herefordshire Education Authority and the teachers of the N.U.T. Mr A W Dakers (president of the Js.y^T.), Mr W A Nicholls (local representative of the N.U.T.). Mr F Taylor (member of the executive), Mr A A Thomas and Mr Derry (Herefordshire Society) represented the teachers. The matter was fully discussed, but the Educa- tion Committee stated that they had resolved not to depart from their original decision. Subsequently a larssly-attnnded meeting of the county teachers was he) I in the Town Hall. The following resolute m was unani- mously adopted That this meeting of teachers engaged in the county of Hereford reaffirms its fidelity and loyalty to the National Union of Teachers, and thanks the executive and the association^ of the uuion for the whole-hearted support accorded them." The Education Committee, it is offiaiallv stated, are making efforts to fill the 223 vacancies which will o^cur next-month. It is said that several Scottish teachers who had accepted positions in ignorance of the facts have withdrawn their acceptance and Mr Phillips, the assistant master, who was offered a headmastership at Walford, near Ross, at an increased salary of £ 40 per annum, has withdrawn; while a teacher who was offered an extra £50 a year to take a vacant post has also declined to accept it. — ♦ —
