The joint advice will be arriving in all schools shortly. Use it to confirm with your head teacher and governors that all teachers will get the appropriate pay increase from September. The NUT will support members in any school which refuses to pay the increases set out in the joint advice.

The NUT pay toolkit is a set of advice documents for NUT members and NUT representatives intended to help teachers secure pay progression, by taking collective action to resist pay policies which would reduce rates of pay progression or by pursuing and winning appeals against decisions that individual teachers should not progress.
This year will be the first when pay progression for all teachers will depend on appraisal outcomes and criteria set by schools. Taking action to challenge pay policies collectively or appeal decisions individually will be essential to help protect teachers’ pay.
