The State School Teachers Union says industrial action is still on the table after the Government held its ground over plans to cut hundreds of education jobs across the state.
More than 15,000 people attended a stop-work meeting in Perth last week to protest against the Government's plans to overhaul the education sector.
Those plans will see the loss of 500 education jobs, a freeze on teacher numbers, and cuts to special assistance programmes.
The Government has ruled out any negotiations with unions, saying it will not change its plans to overhaul the sector.
Earlier today, the Education Minister Peter Collier said he hoped the meeting would prevent any further industrial action by school staff.
"The intent of the meeting today is to listen to the union, and ideally work with the union in a collaborative fashion to avert any further industrial action, that's the intent," he said.
The union's Anne Gisborne met Mr Collier and the Premier Colin Barnett to discuss the changes.
She says no compromise was reached.
Ms Gisborne says that could mean further industrial action.
"Sadly that means the message to us it that we need to continue to work on this campaign," she said.
Ms Gisborne says the union is gathering more support.
