    I was under the impression the GTC was being disbanded and replaced.

    However I have had a letter to pay this years subs again...

    Any ideas what is going on?
    Do I pay as normal and get refunded?
    Do I ignore it and carry on as normal?
    Ignore the letter and let them take the money out of my wages?

  3. I'm going to ignore mine and let them take it out....eventually
     
  4. Don't they take it out automatically? I don't think I pay separately...

    They stole mine again this year just the same as all other years.
     
  6. Mine too.

    Apparently they'll know more in the Autumn - that's when the Government will put another useless agency in place, but until then the GTC will still oversee us.

    I take great comfort from that.[​IMG]
     
  7. Still don't understand why there is whinging over having to belong to a professional body, especially as the fee isn't extactly extorionate and those for whom membership is compulsary get most of the fee back in their salary. The trade unions look after members' interests while the GTC is the professional body which deals with disciplinary issues. I'd much rather this was done by elected teachers on the GTC than by Mr Gove and his back room boys. I'm a member of a teacher trade union, a subject association and the GTC, and can't see why its such a big issue.

    Well things have got so much better since they were formed! Did they speak out about the deprofessionalisation of teaching when cover supervisors were introduced? What do they actually do for the 20 miliion pounds per year it costs to have them?
     
  9. It's basically cause, umm let's see, we HATE THEM!!!
