This blog is mostly about good things like the joy of teaching, resources, cool ideas, new software/apps, and reblogging also very cool things.
Sometimes it’s necessary to point out mine and others’ current situation.
In Mexico, PNIEB is still work-in-progress program, so there has been a lot of problems with money, materials and working situation.
Some states has a lot of delays in paychecks like 3 or 4 months, some even 6 months.
The material or textbooks is another issue. Some schools don’t have it at all, or it’s not enough for all students. and the working situation?…
Well, just said we are being paid the same salary for a couple of years now (no increase at all), no social security nor bonus… Forget about my summer paid vacations. I am almost giving birth and still working, YES! No maternity leave either!!!
IN SONORA, this year, the new management staff of our main department has made a lot of mistakes that have been harmful to my pocket. HOW?
There has been 2 delays in the paychecks in September and January. This made a lot of people mad and angry, me included.
Finally, we are making a stand and saying WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT… We are gathering as a group of unhappy hard-working teachers about our working situation. We are around 600 teachers in my state: SONORA, only 200 and more in the state capital.
Some teachers had put posters in their school fences saying our really:
9 school years without
- No increase in salary.
- No social security
- No xmas bonus
- No paid vacations
- No final settlement at the end of each contract
- No seniority
Since most information within our organization is not mine to give, I can’t tell a lot details. Except, we are working hard to improve our current and unfair situation.
