    Teacher voluntary pay cut

    Teacher voluntary pay cut 15th Sep 17 at 4:00 PM

    I'm a substitute teacher in Northern Ireland and have been for 10 years now. During this time I have moved to the top of the pay scale through annual progression. However, due to the budgetary difficulties faced in the public sector recently, I have found that I have become too expensive for schools to hire me. I have asked the Department of Education if I can move back down the pay scales to give myself a better opportunity for work but they have refused to allow me to do this.
    Can someone tell me if there is anything I might be able to do to force this issue with them?

    Thanks in advance
