just feels like one

what happens if i get rushed into hospital at 1am?

no compassion but want all your co-operation


Yep you signed it the contract that mugs you off the normal fate of a MUG :badgrin: :badgrin:

It wasn't my contract. County hall school contracts are not signed.
I was told today that the same person who had this contract has another contract to another special school and he apparently takes all the kids to mcdonalds for breakfast every Friday. Dodgy or what.

also, if they "sack you" (in our booklet) they can have a contractor cover your run till the statutory 4 week "hand back" is over and charge you whatever that contractor charges them...

so you wont get paid and will get a bill



I am led to believe this is standard practice in all L/As. Home to School transport contracts.


the trick is to only upset them when they dont owe you anything...because i doubt they could chase it through the courts but (if quick enough) they might take it out of payments due.

we have a "4 week hand back" clause but i gave 3 weeks before a half term...

:wink:

your wrong...

Its not a fine as such, its a CHARGE, it should be laid out in the formal terms of the contact that you "the contractor" if relieved of your route due to non-compliance are liable to meet the councils costs in covering that route for a fixed period.

If you dont like the terms of the deal...........dont deal

as I said, they probably wouldnt chase it through the courts but would grab any payments due to the offending contractor

Union members would of course receive free advice and representation on this but naturally are too stupid to have it ho ho hoh ho ho :badgrin: :lol: :lol:

pay the fine or a fekking lawyer he he he he :D :D



Not if you Union is Unite who advise of school contract disputes “This a contractoral matter and not one of employment.. You’re on your own”

Mind you reading this case it would seem that the driver is being hit by his employer who signed the contract and said it was cleared.
