Teachers Strike

Geelong and regional Teachers assembled at Geelong Trades Hall today to catch buses  (7 July) to the rally at Hisense Arena. The teachers were angry with the Victorian Government and the lack of respect being shown. One teacher said that not only was the 2.5% pay rise was an insult, the performance based pay rises proposed were destructive to the 'team' approach necessary for a healthy educational environment. "Ted just has no idea and does not understand us or education".
