The claim was submitted two days after the education minister announced that the School Teachers Review body had recommended a 2.4% uplift, with the Welsh government then announcing their intention to award 2.75%, with a 5% uplift for newly qualified school teachers.

Margaret Phelan, Wales Official, said 'it will be interesting to see whether the employers continue to maintain pay parity with school teachers. We are expecting a response from Colegau Cymru mid October.'
