Statement from PPTA president Jack Boyle:

"We are disappointed that the Ministry of Education has rejected the PPTA’s offer to return to the negotiating table or go back to mediation.

We firmly believe that the best people to work through the issues are the experienced teachers on our negotiating team who have an intricate understanding of the issue that face the profession.

We believe that, if the government has something new for us to discuss, the best place for that to happen is around the negotiating table.

Formal third party intervention will not assist us at this point as solutions to our key issues; workload in particular, can only come from dialogue between those with specialised and close understanding of the sector.

We remain open to return to mediation or negotiation."
