Waltham Forest - fighting school cuts
A joint meeting of workplace reps from GMB, Unite, National Union of Teachers and Unison was held on 4 July to discuss a strategy to fight school cuts in Labour-run Waltham Forest council, north east London.
The meeting heard how teaching assistants are threatened with job losses. It was agreed to organise a joint trade union rally at the town hall against any education cuts in the new autumn term.
The Fair Funding For All Schools campaign group has organised a Carnival Against the Cuts on Sunday 16 July. Assemble: Whitehall Gardens, London SW1, 12noon. Rally at Parliament Square, 1.30pm.
