School support staff UNITE to improve pay, safety and career progression
What does PSA stand for? In this case, Pay, Safety and Advancement—the themes of Unite’s PSA campaign to improve conditions for all school support workers. The on-going Inclusion Review provides the opportunity to propose new
- job descriptions—which can result in regrading
- reporting lines
- working patterns.
The formal consultation looks set to launch in January.
We are working with members in scope of the review to ensure the review provides positive outcomes for workers—solutions to the issues you are experiencing, better pay, ensuring your safety at work and the opportunity to advance in your career supporting pupils in school.
Read on to find out about the opportunities to have your say and influence the review.
