ASTI ballot

It is six years ago now so I won't go into every detail. However I sought legal advice outside the union and was told I had a strong case. Didn't end up pursuing the issue and went back to part time work. I have no massive disregard for ASTI and admire their previous positions on pay restoration b

ASTI ballot

Fair question. When I started out teaching I was in a dual union school, I joined ASTI. I had my contract cancelled due to not being qualified and I had no work for my final dip year (Desipite literally hundreds having contracts whilst doing their dip). The union would not help me at all when it cam

Ingenious. Just divide nothing by 2.

Will the unions come out and give this idea the response it deserves? There should be a campaign instructing principals not to sign up. The department are becoming more and more of a farce. The equal pay elephant is not moving from the room lads

ASTI ballot

As a new entrant teacher and member of TUI I have been disgusted by some of the decisions and positions that the executive have taken over the last seven years. However, I do think the only way to change the attitude is to disrupt the status quo and get involved rather than turn our backs on unions

Was I scammed?

To be honest he just threw the figure out there and said I was trouble making after I asked was he going to forge my signature on the log book. Tired to make me out to be the one in the wrong. I have the use of an avensis for a while so I may just keep that until I buy another

ASTI ballot

At the moment the TUI have the position of awaiting a ballot by ASTI and INTO of its members. However ASTI are waiting for the results of INTO balloting their members. It reminds me of the classic Mexican stand off scene from the U.S office. I have attached a photo for anyone not au faith with the

Was I scammed?

I was in touch with the garage again today. Long story short, the owner said I could buy the car back for €700 plus the €150 back. At this stage I am probably go any further as it could develop into a he said she said situation and I have no faith in the garage to actually fix the vehicle. Than

Was I scammed?

In response to a few of the questions raised. 1) The garage is a small enough type one located in an industrial estate in Dublin 15. It has a Facebook page but not updated in a long time and has 4 stars when you Google them. 2) I handed over the logbook and key however I did not sign the logbook

Was I scammed?

I recently had a break down in my 2008 scenic. The car wouldn’t restart and it was towed to the nearest garage. I was in contact with the garage for a few days and they said they couldn’t find the problem. Eventually the owner said the cost of fixing the engine would be close to 1 grand after labor

CELTA Courses Dublin, which one??!

I would definitely recommend Alpha College. I am a secondary teacher but I did my CELTA with them in 2012. That summer I got a months work in their Summer school. They look after you when you qualify and will employ you if they have the opportunity

Da Dawg pound

Great thread! Brock Osweiler FTW under center. Would be great to see him turn it around this season, however there is also a strong chance of him busting like the long list before him. Gotta be excited after a great draft. Be good for Kizer to have a year behind Kessler/Osweiller without the press

Teaching Positions Applications requiring Leaving Cert results

@picturehangup I suppose the tongue was firmly in cheek with my response but from my viewpoint the only interaction I ever have with the TC is the yearly correspondence over renewal. What exactly is the purpose of it and couldn't as Gebgbegb mentioned it be brought under control of the department.

Teaching Positions Applications requiring Leaving Cert results

How very naiive of you! The teaching council exists in order to collect €65 a year from all teachers. They are very efficient at sending multiple registered letters to people weeks in advance in order to remind them that they will owe the €65 soon. Then send some more registered letters. They do als
