I am working at a highly specialised unit for PMLD. The daily rate was umbrella at £120 per day I have recently been doing after school meetings, which I did not expect to have to do I wrote a polite email to the agency saying that, umbrella is a worse deal to begin with; I have been there 7 weeks and will be asked back after the holidays; I have been doing extra meetings...any chance of a move up to £130 per day? The reply was that, sadly, the school will not pay any more. "Well, how about you (the agency), taking a bit less and giving it to me? " I didn't say it, though, I was told that they will charge the school for any extra hours done in the week, and this will be the solution. Was i within my rights to ask?
