This is a weekend event, its FREE! and starts Friday 25th 17.00-20.00
25th November 17.00-20.00 – hands on make your own postcard print & support striking Durham Teaching Assistants strike fund!
Striking today & tomorrow, Durham County Council plan to sack 2700 Teaching Assistants and impose a 23% wage cut on re-engaged staff! The message & information the Council send out devalues their staff and misinforms the public. Durham TA’s are defending their jobs, pay & conditions and deserve our support. In the words of Henry Hetherington ‘Knowledge is power!’. Come along and make your own print to take away, but leave a donation for the strikers fund. Want to support the Durham TA’s? you can donate HERE. Want to know more about Henry Hetherington? Check out Spartacus Educational.
