ITV News Central has been told that a teaching assistant strike will still take place in Derby next week.

TA's have been striking over changes to their contract that they say leaves them with 25% less pay.

This week, Derby City Council offered UNISON a new deal. The authority said they would allow a representative nominated by UNISON to review the scoring and job content of a Special Needs Teaching Assistant.

However, UNISON has told us the strike will still go ahead on Monday, Wednesday and Friday next week.
