Threatened Strike by teachers

Recommended Posts

I bet they don’t strike over half term or the Easter Holidays, or the two weeks at TT or the six weeks in the summer, then half term next Christmas Holidays.   They will have a job getting dates when they are actually doing a bit.   Such a furore if you ask to take a child off for a day apparently it blights any chance of them having a decent future and may even scar them for life.  They aren’t worrying about that now that a bit of extra dosh is on the horizon.   There are some very conscientious teachers but there are also some really crap ones.   They may on paper seem undervalued on the pay front but if you count how many holidays they get and the hours they put in a week their hourly rate is quite high 13 weeks a year is a substantial time off not many other jobs offer that in fact it is 25% of the year.

Cregeen has screwed this up. Too weak too soon. They’ll run rings round him with the threat of strikes until they get what they want.

The fact they offered the teachers a deal without Treasury approval or a business case speaks volumes. In other words teachers can have this deal but they've no guarantees they'll (DESC) be able to hold up their end of the bargain.

I think he’d probably say or do anything to avoid a conflict which is exactly what he’s going to get by saying and doing anything that comes into his (largely empty) head.

I get the impression that Mr Cregeen doesn’t really care.  According to the next Tynwald questions paper, he has developed an interest in the voting process for the legislative council.  Anyone care to make a prediction?

Cregeen is the Father of the House. Make of that fact what you will.

I see that the teaching unions have called upon the Chief Minister to intervene. The teachers haven’t done their homework.

On that theme, I find it strangely satisfying that we can now refer to ‘next year’s general election’. A chance for some culling.
