United Kingdom - Teaching assistants resist term-only contracts - December 31, 2015

Teaching assistants in schools in Durham county in North East England have spoken out against plans that would put them on term-only contracts. The county council want to cut costs by replacing current year-round contracts by term-only contracts, which would imply teaching assistants are not paid during holiday periods.
