Teachers’ protest

Teachers’ protest

Teachers and principals took strike action in July 1994 in support of pay parity for primary and secondary teachers – a goal they achieved in 1998. Education union NZEI Te Riu Roa has a Māori representative group, Te Reo Areare, which provides leadership for union members on Māori-related issues.
