UNISON Northern Ireland


UNISON has launched a major consultation with thousands of members working in schools and the Education Authority.

Encouraging members to have their say on major issues and challenges, this is a big exercise in member participation.

Pay levels and resistance to cuts are key issues raised with members and we want to hear directly from them.

We already know members are determined not to be ignored. The continuing political stalemate will not be accepted for delays in resolving pay issues or cuts to funding for Education.

In the absence of the Northern Ireland Assembly, governance rests with the Secretary of State.

The results of this major consultation will be brought directly to the Education Authority, the Department of Education and the Secretary of State at the Northern Ireland Office.

There is no doubt that Education members will be taking to the streets in the coming weeks and months.
