UNISON has given notice to Derby City Council of the intention for School Support Staff to take a further ten days of industrial action commencing on Monday 6 March 2017.
This weeks action will include:
Wednesday 1 March, our School Support Staffs action will take place in Derby City Centre and at the Council House.
Thursday 2 March the UNISON senior negotiators are to meet Derby City Councillors with ACAS to mediate.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank parents and the communities of Derby for their continued support. The people of Derby recognise that school support staff did not want to take on this fight, but it is a fight for a sustainable and effective education system in our City, and for the future of all our children and young people.
While involved in the dispute, school support staff will be completing further professional development, including behaviour management and aspergers and autism training, as well as continuing to put pressure on the Council to take part in serious and meaningful negotiations.
