REAPs settle for 3 percent

Posted By TEU on Sep 10, 2009 |

TEU members at four Rural Education Activities Programmes (Marlborough, Ruapehu, Tairāwhiti and West REAP) are all voting on an offer from their employers for a three percent pay increase over one year with no significant changes to their working conditions. Although they were not negotiating a MECA the four REAPs did negotiate together to reach a common settlement. This offer is one of the larger proposed settlements in the tertiary sector despite the REAPs facing likely funding problems as a result of the government’s budget cuts to adult and community education.
