Responding to the news of the decision by the East Dunbartonshire Council last night to attack the terms and conditions of support staff in schools, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:
“The NASUWT is appalled by the news that East Dunbartonshire is attacking the terms and conditions of service of support staff.
“Support staff have a vital role in schools and are an important part of the education team around the child.
“This is another example of the Council’s callous disregard for staff and its failure to understand the importance of valuing its school workforce.  
“The NASUWT has announced already its strikes for next week because of the Council’s failure to respond positively to the concerns of teachers.
“The Council should be in no doubt that the NASUWT and its members stand side by side with the support staff and their unions in defending decent working conditions.
“Rather than attacking teachers and support staff, the Council should be seeking to ensure that staff have working conditions which enable them to work effectively in the interests of the children and young people in our schools.
“The news about support staff, following on from the NASUWT’s announcement of strikes by teachers, will rightly cause deep concern to parents across East Dunbartonshire.”
