New Safety and Science document.

Progress is slow but still being made on this important safety document. Final sign off from the Ministry of Education is still some time away.

The NZEI pay claim on behalf of School Science Technicians is going to be a long process. Consultation has started. Chris Walker, a lead negotiator joined our Executive meeting and explained the negotiation process for a pay claim.
