    This is an NUT press release about the GTC fees. It is a quotation, indicated by the >

    [q1]>Fee Fiasco 20 Feb 2002[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>Government seeks to claw back NUT success[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The NUT has won its claim that the Government should pay the fee required of teachers by the GTC[/q1]
    [q1]>(England) and the GTC (Wales). The STRB has agreed and recommends that a sum of £33 be added to all[/q1]
    [q1]>spine points for qualified teachers after implementation of our recommended pay uplift.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The Secretary of State has accepted that but refuses to agree that £33 be paid in full to every[/q1]
    [q1]>teacher required to register.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>A numeracy test[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>Divide and add - add and divide - which is better?[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>If you are a part-time teacher or a supply teacher, the Government wishes to give you only a[/q1]
    [q1]>fraction of the £33 towards your GTC fee.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>A worked example[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>Take a 0.5 part-time teacher on point 5 who would earn[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]> £20,547 divided by 2 = £10,273.50.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The Secretary of State says:[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]> £20,547 + £33 divided by 2 = £10,290 - £16.50 extra[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The NUT says:[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]> £20,547 + £33 divided by 2 = £10,306.50 - £33 extra[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>A small difference in pounds - a vast difference in principle. The position of hourly-paid teachers[/q1]
    [q1]>will be even worse.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The government's discriminatory approach[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The headteacher of a group 8 school earning £85,704 will get the £33 to pay in full his GTC fee.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The 0.5 part-time teacher on Main Pay Scale point 5 earning £20,547 will get only £16.50 to pay[/q1]
    [q1]>only part of her GTC fee.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The NUT's equitable approach[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The NUT principle is that there should be no discrimination.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>The NUT's policy is that every teacher in England and Wales, full-time, part-time and supply,[/q1]
    [q1]>should receive the full £33 to pay the GTC fee.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>General Secretary, Doug McAvoy, said:[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>"Every teacher should receive the £33. Any other outcome will be discriminatory. Teachers' hopes[/q1]
    [q1]>were raised when the GTC, the Review Body and the Government accepted the NUT's view that to[/q1]
    [q1]>teachers' pay should be added the GTC fee. Teachers' hopes were dashed when the Secretary of State[/q1]
    [q1]>decided to discriminate against part-time, supply and agency teachers.[/q1]
    [q1]>[/q1]
    [q1]>"The NUT has urged the Secretary of State to agree that the £33 should be paid in full to every[/q1]

    [q1]>withdraw their agreement to pay the fee.[/q1]

    Headteacher - 'His'?

    Well there certainly is when it comes to language.

    All very academic really, I'm still not joining a talking shop that will send me junk mail and waste
    my time. £33 extra in my salary. Thank-you very much... I take it in part payment for the hours I'm
    currently putting into the school show.

    Love eddie

    Yes. As I said it was a quotation. My view (and the view of Socialist Teachers) is in line with
    yours. If the GTC were free it would be a disgrace to have a body run by Tony's cronies which
    pretends to represent teachers.
