Guys this is the wrong time to bicker over which union is the best. We have it seems a common enemy or at least our employer seems not to have our best interests at heart. There are still so many issues left unresolved that I do not believe we should roll over and accept this deal. The vast majority of teachers - for all of our failings - work very hard in a stressful job. I do not believe the public and certainly not the media ever give us credit for this. We are easy targets and it seems teaching is not a profession respected in Scotland any more. This is so sad as we are the ones who help shape our nations future. We deserve to be supported in the classroom and indeed out with the classroom as the erosion of respect and discipline among pupils is at an alarming rate it seems. We deserve to do our best without worrying about sick pay, or supply teachers not being paid the going rate. We deserve to have secured maternity entitlements and indeed secured rest from a stressful occupation. We are NOT babysitters. We are NOT clockwatchers as Mr McCrone tarred us all earlier in the week. Shame on him. I am personally disgusted by how little regard it seems COSLA has for us as a body of workers. The time to debate whether EIS or SSTA is better is for after this crisis, for that is what this is.
