Several Renfrewshire schools are set to be hit with strike action this week over a pay dispute.

We previously reported that Unison confirmed they are preparing for their members to walk out on Tuesday, September 26, Wednesday, September 27, and Thursday, September 28.

Staff taking part in the action will include school admin, classroom assistants, additional support needs assistants, janitorial, cleaning, and catering workers.

As part of the strikes, a procession will also take place on Tuesday, September 26 from Country Square in Paisley at 12pm to Cotton Street for a Rally at 12.30pm.

Mark Ferguson, chair of Unison's Scottish Local Government Committee and Renfrewshire Branch Secretary, said: "Unison is continuing with schools' strikes unless something significant comes from COSLA in the new few hours.

"We have tried to talk to COSLA over the weekend, but problems still remain - Unison's commitment to winning a £15 per hour minimum rate for all local government roles, has not been satisfactorily addressed.

"And the failure to provide any new money to back this offer means further service cuts and job losses.

"Unison will not accept a position where the union is asked to trade pay for jobs and services.

"No one takes the decision to strike lightly. But Unison believes that council workers in Scotland deserve far better.

"I know the inconvenience these strikes will cause - I am a parent myself.

"But if we don't take a stand then the longer-term impact on our children is going to get far worse with the cuts."
