The nationwide strike was organised by the New Zealand Educational Institute, the largest education trade union in the country.

Today history was made as 30,000 primary and intermediate teachers took to the street for the nationwide strike.

Thousands turned out at rallies and marches across the country to support primary teachers and principals, the trade union wrote on Facebook.

According to Radio New Zealand, the trade union insists on smaller class sizes and a 16-per cent pay spike over two years for primary school teachers and special education coordinators.

The Education Ministry however, offered gradual increases between 14 per cent for new teachers and six per cent for their experienced colleagues.
