Derby school support staff vote for council pay offer

Some teaching assistants will share £2m in order to compensate for loss of hours following the contract changes.

 

Teaching assistants in Derby have voted to end months of strike action over changes to pay and working time.

 

It brings to an end a row over Derby City Council's changes to school support staff contracts, which Unison said would see individual teaching assistants lose £6,000 a year.

 

A cash lump sum for some of those affected has been agreed.

 

Derby City Council said it was "delighted" the contract offer had been accepted.
