The four years between the reform of Burnham in 1965 and the first national pay strike by teachers in 1969 proved that the system was unable to deal with either incomes policies or industrial action. It also showed that arbitration awards that fail to reflect the power reality of the parties cannot restore the balance of peace, and create a rightful cynicism with respect to the independence from government of arbitration systems. This then was the start of the crisis which staggered from strikes to pay inquiries and from more strikes to pay review bodies, and which dealt the fatal blow to Burnham and has left a dangerous vacuum at the heart of pay determination policy.

The final decisions when teachers have taken action as to the future of pay levels and pay determination have been largely moulded by the teacher unions and not by government and the DES or their advisers. This indicates two points: first, that government has no strong view on teacher pay and pay mechanisms; and secondly, that government has no interest in strategic decision-making in this area. Our argument as to the nature of pay levels, structures and determination has been set within a political and institutional framework shaped by industrial action.
