School support staff vote ends ten-month dispute


Derby school support staff have voted overwhelmingly (nine to one) to accept the council’s latest offer, ending a ten-month dispute over pay and working time, says UNISON.

Derby City Council had imposed changes last June that meant staff lost up to £6,000 a year, as their contracts were reduced from 52 to 44.5 weeks. UNISON said their weekly hours were also increased from 32.5 to 37 with no extra pay.

Since the beginning of the dispute, school support staff staged a series of protests culminating in all out industrial action last month.

UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

School support staff can go into work with their heads held high, knowing that the value of the work they do for children and schools has been recognised.
