Union welcomes commitment to increase school funding
GMB, the union for school support staff, has welcomed an announcement from the Labour Party that it would stop cuts to school budgets  with a real terms increase in funding.
Sharon Wilde, National Officer for Schools, GMB said:
“Theresa May’s Government has been set on running schools into the ground and trampling over our children’s life chances.
"The hard work of dedicated school support staff is being undermined by devastating cuts that would see schools the length and breadth of the country lose out.
"Reversing these damaging cuts to schools - and instead committing to a plan to properly fund our future is the right thing to do.”
