I just heard about this yesterday and am amazed at the lack of noise about it!
But it's such a stealth move that it's possible many teachers still don't know about it. If so, people need to wake up and stop this latest disgraceful pay cut in its tracks! That is if you want to hang on to your €518 annual flat rate expenses which I presume you do! So please sign the petition to the Minister [link below] at change.org:
And also write to your local Tds to make it clear how this latest attack on low and middle income earners is both unacceptable and political suicide for them just before an election.
This really is a galling grab and run attack and people need to get off their asses and PROTEST.
