These workers face discrimination in terms of wages and rights because the work they do is seen as non-essential. However, the union has insisted that their work is important and they should be respected as members of the education community. The union has already won some rights for the workers, but continues to fight for recognition of the status of education support workers as public school workers. They will take part in a massive protest on 27 July 2015 and call on the Ministry of Education to listen to their demands, especially as concerns an end to wage discrimination.
