My head teacher just approached me and said she wasn't sure if I would be getting my TLR whilst on maternity and I should ask the bursar. It is because the teacher wages are high next year and she is not sure if she can afford to pay two people the TLR while I'm off. Can this happen? I am a single mum and all my working out has been done on my current wages. I will have problems I think. Should I contact my union? Or at least threaten to?
