    given that these are not tasks which are part of our professional duties you should not be directed to carry them out. The actual duties of a teacher have been agreed (with union consultation) and laid down in the STPCD (with annual, partial union consultation).

  3. Why is it some idiots like to get so high and mighty about this sort of thing?
    Well done Beckton, you're in a Union. I'm very happy for you.
    Tessa happens to not be a Union, and does not deserve your childish attitude towards her.

  4. Actually, the OP does deserve opprobrium. Non-union members would be in a far worse postion if it was not for the actions of their unionised colleagues over the years. Beckton's post is witty and succinct. Good on him.
