[etni] Re: Fw: new contract for oral testing and bagrut examiners --strike call

I signed the form and sent it back without looking at it, assuming it was
the same as previous ones. I'm sorry I did it, but what can I do about it
now? I've always thought the pay was ridiculous for such exhausting work on
our free day, but nobody has seriously complained about it it till now.

With all this talk of the Ministry again trying to take
advantage of the good-hearted English teachers in its employ
ie. the controversial contract being given to orla testers,
isn't it about time that we oral testers took a leaf out of
the Bagrut checkers' book and refused to work till our
remuneration becomes commensurate with the work we do?
 
As with the checkers' strike, the Ministry will be in a bind
if we decide to down tools. We have to realise that right
and might are on our side.  I tested in 3 schools last year
because of the lack of testers. It was time-consuming and
exhausting (I hate having to be pleasant at the best of
times -- having to keep it up for 3 hours at a stretch is
torture for me ;) )
 
I am not going to send back the contract until things are
sorted out in our favour. Am I on my own or are others also
of the same mind?
 
I realise that many might think that because of what is
going on in the south now might not be the time to make
waves, but if we don't organise action now it will be too
late soon.
