One of the biggest teachers' unions in England and Wales is demanding a pay rise of 10% or at least £3,000, whichever is greater.

Delegates at the annual National Union of Teachers conference backed the call despite warnings it would be unseemly when people are being made redundant.

I've got a great idea...why don't they try fcuking teaching, and then ask for some more money.

Cnuts.

Makes our 2.8 look like a waste of time. How about making it law that any one going into the teaching profession has had to do a minimum of four years military service.


13 weeks off a year, bastards!

And reduction of actual contact time with pupils as well. Only supposed to do 80% of the working day actually teaching (that's the 9 to 4 working day with at least an hour for lunch plus breaks)

Don't even get me started on the mandatory teacher training days.

Fucck off you pricks ... yes, 10% may seem a bit steep - but Im pretty sure you would be unpleasantly suprised by the scale of the work within the job - particularly when 30% of the staff around you are on longterm sick leave, and still being paid more.

10% sounds fine to me, especially as the ''holidays'' you mention are actually just non-teaching work days ... my breaks are filled with reports, assessments, marking, team meetings, scemes of work, policy writing and updating, planning ... and the list goes on.

Im pretty sure you arent expected to work (unpaid) in your evenings, weekends and holidays. Yes people are being made redundant, but so are teachers as schools close and education is increasingly run as a business. It is worth noting that FE in Wales has just had a funding cut of 7.4% (which equates to £3 million in our case) while we remain under the same pressure to deliver and achieve to targets but with increased class sizes combined with resource and staffing cuts.

Considering my job for example, where there is one of me and I cannot go sick otherwise the work would not be done within the unit, or because our trade as a whole is critically undermanned and we are going back and forth on tours (much like the rest of the sodding Armed Forces) but you don't see us getting a 10% payrise, and you earn more money than we do to start off with.

You mean like a lot of us do already, work evenings weekends and even have our "hollidays" cancelled at a moments notice because something has come up. From what I can see. We work harder than you, we work for longer than you, and we get paid less than you. Care to justify the 10% you workshy cnut?

oooh! get her! 8O

mate - I'm a uni lecturer and work nights, weekends, holidays (including today) etc and haven't had a sniff of a 10% or 3K payrise....

Can you not see that calling for this when the rest of the country is going through the wringer is not exactly politic?

Like they actually give a toss about anybody but theirselves.

Actually, I approve. Go on NUT, strike.
You know you want to, after all you are really undervalued etc etc etc.

Anything that helps hasten an election is fine by me, which is all a teachers strike will do. They have fook all chance of getting a 10% payrise but if it makes them feel better and puts Mr Brown under more pressure it'll do for me.

Hahahahahahaha

10% you say?


Hahahahahahahaha.


I really fcuking hate fcuking unions with every fibre of my body!



but knowing this lot of lefty smegs in the Government they will probably do a deal at 8% and say it was a fair compromise.

Or is that the NUT's plan?

"One of the biggest teachers' unions in England and Wales is demanding a pay rise of 10% or at least £3,000, whichever is greater."
Do they mean that they can't work out which is greater?

Look on the bright side Groomer - you could always save money by making a mug out of a mortar tube, thus being thrifty and impressing your gullible students in one fell swoop.

Onfire - most brilliant parody I have ever heard. You actually sounded just like some of the kn0bjockeys who have been speaking at their conference.

I have actually heard some of my teacher friends try to claim one of two of your points when thay are p!shed and we take the mick. I've never seen anyone make all the points together in such a funny manner.

The spelling and typo mistake counter-pointed with some mindless abuse make the irony delicious.

Have you thought about offering a regular spoof series to Private Eye or something similar

I hope your school burns down, whilst your in it.

Thats right ... we are all work shy - none of us feel any responsibility to our jobs, or the fact that if we go sick (working in the most unhygienic enviroment after hospitals) our students suffer or, worse, stand to fail.

Yes - we care about noone except ourselves ... thats why we choose to work in a people-focussed sector directly affecting the bedrock of society and industry. Teachers are in the public sector, just the same as the Armed Forces, Police etc ... we start at £19k a year, but dont progress nearly so quickly as the Police or Fire who work 4 days on, 4 days off and are able to hold down a second job as well as having substantial holidays per year. I cannot believe your holidays are cancelled and actually taken off you ... holidays are a legal entitlement, and you enjoy leave before and after ops as an additional luxury.

Teachers, nurses, paramedics, firefighters, police officers ... hardly in the same boat as 'fat cat' bank executives are we?!

Schleswig Holstein ... I work in a college and wont see a penny increase either, but that is hardly the point is it? Or should we remind you that you actually lecture to raise money for research (research being the primary purpose of university afterall) ... and that being how universities pay their way - not really the same ball game is it.

Wouldn't happen. His mahoosive amount of tea carried in his mortar tube mug would be enough to extinguish the blaze and remove all traces of his DNA from his student's cavities.

FFS don't encorage them, all that will happen is instead of cutting 10000 TA posts, they change the rules about teachers qualifications to make sure we would be able to be used to replace them
