Union takes to the streets in teaching assistant dispute


(February 2017) Public services union UNISON continues to campaign against the pay cuts imposed on teaching assistants in Derby in central England. This week will see the union out on the streets every lunchtime to urge citizens and workers to sign a petition calling on the municipality to return to the negotiating table and to recognise the valuable work being done by this group of workers. The week-long action coincides with the general week of campaigning in support of trade unions organised by the TUC confederation.
