Hi I would welcome some advice about my pay situation. In accordance with STPCD I am being pro-rata to be HoD of a large department. I carry out 98% minimum of the required tasks as the previous (full-time) post holder did. I resent being paid only 2/3 of what they were paid. I am in school 4 days a week, contactable on the 5th and do much of the HoD work from home. I have raised this before but end up getting no where. Having seen my timetable for Sept, my hours are being reduced. I will therefore be being paid even less for doing the same job which feels like a real kick in the teeth. This is also an 'acting' role - it has been that way for 2 years now, and will be continuing into a 3rd. How long is it reasonable to continue 'acting' rather being made a permanent contract? I want to continue in the role, I believe I do a good job. I am very frustrated however by the pay situation, and in light of that, the lack of flexibility or good will that I imagine ought to be afforded to someone doing 1/3 of a job for free. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. It's all getting me down somewhat this evening. Thanks!
