The outcome of the recent ballot is now known – 91% of UNISON members have voted in favour of accepting the Council’s offer.

Councillor Baggy Shanker, Cabinet Member for Finance & Governance says of the result:

“We are delighted that the positive ballot result of UNISON members brings to an end this long running dispute.

The Council recognises the commitment of parents and the school community across Derby – the valuable contribution all our employees, teaching assistants, teachers and governors make to the lives of our young people.

Our schools and our school employees can now concentrate on what they do best – educating Derby’s children.”
