I see the PPTA has decided to sue the government over Novopay:
The Post Primary Teachers’ Association is launching legal action over Novopay.
PPTA president Angela Roberts said the association would seek compensation for members for the hurt, humiliation and financial suffering caused by the “dysfunctional” payroll system.
The union’s national executives met at the weekend and decided to take collective legal action on behalf of members.
Fantastic news…can we now sue the PPTA and its members for the hurt, humiliation and suffering at the hands of incompetent teachers, those on power trips and those whose perfunctory attitude to teaching left people on the educational scrap heap.
Not to mention all those members, registered presumably, who have sexually assaulted students.
If you are going to claim hurt, humiliation and suffering from a few missed pays then we sure as hell have a case against teachers for their efforts against students.
Of course the union has just shot themselves in the foot with this claim because it proves beyond a shadow of doubt that they are only in this for themselves…it isn’t about the students affected by these poor hurt, humiliated and suffering teachers as they have professed over and over again…it is just about them and their egos.
