The last few months have seen enormous political shifts, a trend that looks set to continue. Theresa May and the Conservative Party have got themselves in a real mess, with a dramatically weakened Government, a divided party, and no obvious way out of the situation.

Solidarity with our #Derbyuk Teaching Assistants: You can help by spreading the word and donating to the strike fund.

Aside Posted on Updated on

In a major (and very brave) escalation, Derby teaching assistants are now on ALL OUT STRIKE over a 25% pay cut imposed last June. Last week Ranjit Banwait, leader of the Labour council, walked out of a full council meeting rather than face angry parents and TAs. He then walked out early from an ACAS meeting with UNISON the following day – to do prearranged media interviews condemning the negotiations!

Derby TAs are now calling on teachers and heads to help them close schools to bring about a swift resolution to this dispute – you can help by spreading the word and donating to the strike fund.

Make cheques payable to Derby City UNISON Industrial Action Fund and send to: UNISON Derby City Branch, Royal Oak House, Market Place, Derby DE1 3AR.
