News from GMB Yorkshire and North Derbyshire
After a week of negotiations with Govt we have emerged with a pay offer. The GMB committees agreed that should a pay offer emerge we would undertake a consultation of the membership. A pay offer has emerged. After discussions with the National Secretary, Brian Strutton we have recommended and agreed that whilst this consultation commences we suspend the NHS Strike in England. We remain in dispute in Northern Ireland.
The GMB Yorkshire & North Derbyshire Region is aware that the majority of school support staff are being paid at the wrong rate for the job they actually do. For example, teaching assistants paid at TA Level 2 are performing duties equivalent to TA Level 3 or HLTA.
The GMB has issued formal notice for strike action on 29th January 2015 and says it will not be called off unless there is an offer that can be taken back to members for their consideration.
