Last week in the morning I got an afternoon booking for a school where I have worked many times over the years. An hour or so later the agency rang back and said they would only accept Cover Supervisors and asked me to reduce my rate which I refused to do. Half an hour or so later the agency rang back to cancel and told me that many teachers were now accepting work as CS's. Those supply teachers who accept work as CS's are f***ing things up for the rest of us. We should be sticking together and refusing to accept work as CS's as the NUT asked us to do in the summer. Supply teachers are stabbing each other in the back but i refuse to join in. If you are a qualified teacher and work as a CS then you should be ashamed of yourself and you must have no pride in your profession or dignity. Rant over.
