UNISON pushes members' role in Education

While increased spending was welcomed, the STUC called for more investment is in Education. UNISON's Pat Rowland highlighted the Equal Opportunities Commission investigation into the "shockingly low pay" of classroom assistants.

She also backed plans for career progression for early years professionals and outlined that UNISON is still pushing for a national pay structure for nursery nurses. Education group UNISON members working in education have agreed to set up an Education Issues Group to focus on and support the wide range of members delivering education services in Scotland.

Called by the Scottish LG Group, the detail of its structure will be out soon. See next issue and website for details.
