Primary teachers have voted to accept the latest Ministry of Education collective agreement offer.
In a statement this morning, NZEI Te Riu Roa said the offer was the fourth put to teachers.
The settlement includes a six per cent pay increase in July, with two further increases, and it also includes a lump sum payment of $3000 to be paid next month, plus an additional $1500 for union members.
Classroom release times have been increased from 10 to 25 hours per term and mileage allowances have gone up.
NZEI Te Riu Roa president Mark Potter said it was a huge win, as work demands on teachers have sky-rocketed in the last couple of decades.
