NIPSA classroom assistants back on strike



STRIKE action by NIPSA classroom assistants is today continuing despite three other unions ruling out industrial action.
Yesterday, workers belonging to the Unison union voted to accept an offer from employers.

More than three-quarters of them voted to accept the deal on offer, which adds an extra £15m to compensate for changes in work conditions.

Nipsa's 3,000 classroom assistants are striking every Tuesday and Friday.

It is the only one of four unions refusing to accept the proposed job evaluation process.

A meeting of all unions and employers has been called for Friday.
