Rennie: Teacher vote is extraordinary rebuke to SNP

Responding to EIS members overwhelmingly rejecting the Scottish Government's pay offer, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"This is an extraordinary and brutal rebuke to the Education Secretary's handling of the teaching profession. 

“Teaching is an amazing profession but there is an urgent need to make it more desirable to potential and existing teachers.They have every right to demand better. 

"That is why it is time they got a fair deal, backed by a McCrone 2 - an independent expert review of teachers' terms and the demands placed upon them."
