United Kingdom -Trade union against supply policy of teachers -November 03, 2015

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) started a campaign against the policy to use supply agencies in the education sector. In the frame of the NUT’s lobby of supply agencies its members gathered on 28 October in Central London outside the headquarters of Protocol Education and then moved on to Hays plc to voice their concerns about working as a supply teacher through an agency. Lobbyists distributed leaflets to passers-by highlighting their concerns about the unacceptable pay and pension position facing supply teachers employed by agencies, and the excessive levels of commission paid by schools to fuel agencies’ profits and senior employees' salaries.
