SOUTH Tyneside’s two Labour MPs have given their backing to school support staff in the borough involved in a long-running pay dispute.

Emma Lewell-Buck, for South Shields, and Jarrow’s Stephen Hepburn called in at the Unison trade union offices in Westoe Road, South Shields, yesterday to accept a petition opposing a pay offer to support staff and local government workers of one per cent.

Three hundred Unison members working in borough schools, including dinner ladies and teaching assistants, have already signed the document.
