There have been a number of threads about what should and will happen when all this passes, but to be honest besides family and personal cares, i think we need to come out of this as a teaching profession and go forwards with ONE union...not the 4/5 it is now. the NEU and the NASUWT certainly need to unite. We might be facing a situation where an early return to school is made purely on economic grounds and that no concerns for teachers are in the forethoughts of decision makers as they pass it by that kids arent vulnerable so why not? Our conditions of service might be at risk and especially for those on short term contracts and the whole way we approach teachers as a society...we are after all an essential service too...needs reappraisal. And to do that, we need ONE VOICE not 3 or 4. We need to remove or reallocate those union officials to other roles. The teaching unions have done us badly for 30 years now...and here speaks an advocate of strong trade unions....so i put out the call today...LETS HAVE ONE TEACHING UNION when we thankfully pull out of this crisis!
