Update on the Pay and Grading Dispute for UNISON Education Support Service Workers

Your UNISON Education negotiating team has been engaged in a round of talks alongside other trade unions with senior Education Department staff and the EA. These talks are still ongoing and will resume on Monday the 10th of June.

Both the Finance and the Education ministers have welcomed these talks and continue to encourage and support a resolution of our dispute.

There are positive developments, but some hurdles still remain. All sides are pressing for an outcome very soon.

Unions are mindful that any formal proposals will require consultation with our memberships.
