The latest single status proposals will mean massive pay cuts for many
school support staff. Some Teaching Assistants will lose as much as £7,000 per
year – with no pay protection, meaning salaries will drop from April 2011.
Average pay cuts for TA’s would be 25%. Other staff would also lose
pay and possibly annual leave.
Although the council have now agreed to delay the timetable
for implementation to allow for more discussion with the
trade unions, the proposals have not changed and it is
important that the protest still goes ahead.
We still need to let the City Council know that we are not
prepared to accept the proposals – we need your support
please come along and join in the protest.
