    Default INTO's reaction to cut to entitlement to time in lieu for some holidays during maternity leave.

    Budget 2013 - As It Happened - RTÉ News

    16:15

    The INTO has described the decision to cut pregnant teachers’ entitlement to time in lieu for some holidays that fall during maternity leave as "regressive and unfair".

    Sheila Nunan, General Secretary of primary teachers' union, said it would closely examine the implications of the decision on equality grounds and would seek advice.
    Ah, for Pete's sake! The Croke Park Agreement protects core pay in the public sector. Therefore, the Government had to introduce a cut to the entitlement in question in order to avoid further cutbacks to the frontline of primary education. What did the INTO expect?!

    Why do teachers receive pay when off on maternity leave? Teachers should be paid only for teaching, not for breeding. Why should the taxpayer have to subsidise any teacher's decision to breed?

    Maternity Benefit is paid weekly directly into your bank or building society account. Some employers will continue to pay an employee, in full, while she is on maternity leave and require her to have any Maternity Benefit paid to them. You should check your contract of employment to see what applies to you. Maternity Benefit is not taxable. You can get more information from Revenue on how Maternity Benefit is treated for tax purposes.

    Maternity benefit is now taxable.

    Taxpayers such as yourself (I assume) receive the benefit of having a new generation to pay for your incontinence pants and feeding tubes when they are old. Countries, such as Russia, are about to hit a major problem as their populations drop off a cliff in numbers. You, of course, know this and are just being an obstrepourous for the sake of it.

    Can't stand Sheila Nunan myself...

    She comes across as a right bint...

    In fact I can't stand most of the union leadership in this country... no surprise there I guess...

    Doran is ok although I certainly don't agree with most of the sh!te he comes out with...

    I think of him as the unions version of Michael O'Leary... same style...

    Teachers want their holiday time added to Maternity Leave if any of it falls during the 6 month maternity leave.

    That does not answer why teachers should get paid for breeding while factory workers and shop assistants do not.

    As for population decline, is there any evidence of that in Ireland? We seem to have no difficulty attracting immigrants - many of whom we would be better not attracting.

    Please face the fact: Teachers are pampered and overpaid.

    Is there any female teacher in this day and age who doesn't plan the pregnancy so that maternity leave commences on the first day back in September!!

    Then this issue would not arise... Correct?

    Plan yer babies to maximise the time off, or put up with the new arrangements.

    what did you expect from teachers? To be agreeable to anything that doesn't involve more pay or reduced hours?

    These are teachers, man, get a grip.

    Most teachers get far more than 6 months maternity leave. Most tie it in with their summer holidays of 9 weeks. And then any holidays they miss during the 6 months they get added on. Some even get a Doctor's cert at the end of all that and get another month off or .....
