    I hope someone can please help me? I signed my contract to start a teaching role, for the summer term, a few weeks ago with a specific start date until 31st August. The school has told me that they are delaying my contract indefinitely as they don't really need me right now but will give me a month's good will pay. This still leaves me with 4 months' worth of pay to find until schools look like they'll resume in September and things on the job front look bleak right now! I need to know if, legally, they can do this? I emailed the union a week ago and I'm waiting for them to come back to me still, and I'm trying to find work but there's not much out there :( Thanks, Amy

    Please ring the Local Regional Centre. Details will be on the Union National web site.

    If you want to earn some money the Supermarkets are crying out for short term staff. You may wish also to volunteer to help out with the NHS.
