UNISON Launches Campaign to Protect Teaching Assistant Posts.

UNISON, the public sector trade union issued this advisory on their website on Monday 17 June 2013, arising from their conference.

This follows on the GMB pledge to campaign to protect its Teaching Assistant members at its conference in May and along with this 38Degrees petition by a teacher who values her TA support.

TAs are often considered to be a soft-option for cutting costs.  With widening public support, that may become something of a misconception.
