The next section examines the three main alternatives to orderly collective bargaining that were used when Burnham failed—arbitration, strikes and pay inquiries/ reviews—and thereby examines the difficulties involved in setting teachers’ pay and the crisis of the pay determination system in the 1990s. WHAT HAPPENE D WHEN BURNHAM FA ILED TO DEL IVER? Industrial Relations in Schools 27 Deadlock in negotiations among public sector employees, especially professionals in the public services, presents real political problems to those involved.

The crisis in 1965, therefore, represents the start of the process which in turn generated the 1969 national strike, the 1974 Houghton pay inquiry, the 1980 Clegg pay commission, the 1985 national strike, and the abolition of Burnham in 1987. All these landmarks will be discussed below, but for now a brief account of that first public crisis sets the scene. In 1965 the Remuneration of Teachers Act (RTA) brought the DES directly into Burnham, as Ministers sought to control bargaining outcomes more directly.

The government stumbled onto Pay Review for teachers and considered it very much a second best solution since it hampers the move away from national bargaining and provides some protection in the short run for trade unions shy of taking action. Its use therefore further supports the contention of Brown and Rowthorn that ‘Britain has entered the 1990s with a public service pay structure in disarray. This will breed short-run problems’ (Brown and Rowthorn 1990:8). The point at issue is the continued desirability of collective bargaining as the most favoured pay mechanism for any group of employees.
