Teachers march for their rights in regional NSW

July 3, 2022

More than 1000 public and private sector teachers rallied on June 30.

They demanded better pay and conditions, describing their workload as "beyond unsustainable".

Chants raised included: "3% not even halfway there, Perrottet you're living on a prayer".

One speaker said: "It's not that the workloads are unsustainable, it's that they are unmanageable".
