Real Women, Real Power. Mediaworks video with UNISON Scotland classroom assistant Elaine North celebrating a successful campaign in Dumfries and Galloway to save 70 jobs in 2007.
UNISON members Marion Stewart and Elaine North won the STUC One Workplace Equality Award 2008. Presented by Scottish first minister Alex Salmond at the STUC congress in Inverness, the award recognises the role of Scottish trade union members in challenging discriminatory practices and attitudes in the workplace.
Ms Stewart, a branch secretary, and Ms North, a support for learning assistant at Maxwellton High School in Dumfries and a steward for UNISON Dumfries and Galloway local authority branch, led the successful classroom assistants campaign in 2007 that saw a planned proposal to cut up to 70 classroom assistant posts withdrawn by education officials.
