Meet Julie Davies the £300,000 Teaching Pilgrim

Pilgrim fans will love Julie Davies, a teacher in Haringey who hasn’t stood in front of a blackboard since the turn of the century. Despite being paid £35,000pa to teach English at Northumberland Park Community School in Haringey, Davies has been working for the NUT five days a week since 2000. Instead of teaching she seems to spend most of her time agitating against the government and leaving comments on Lynne Featherstone’s blog. Guido particularly enjoyed the quote Davies gave the Standard:

“I’m an ordinary teacher. Most of my time’s spent sitting next to teachers who are being sacked or disciplined.” She denied being a “pilgrim” – a union official paid from the public purse. “I work really hard. I’m paid £35,000 a year by Haringey, and help when someone’s in trouble. I don’t work for the union. My substantive position is English teacher. If I stopped doing this [union] job I could return tomorrow.”

That’s the plan Julie, that’s the plan…

UPDATE: An eagle-eyed co-conspiritor points out that Davies is not registered as an “ordinary teacher” on her school’s website. Not only is she being paid £35,000pa, but the same amount of money will have to be spent on another teacher to cover for her. The NUT should pay for this organiser.

          If you read the Standard article, a Haringey council spokesman said it is a legal requirement to give appropriate staff time off for union work.

          In this case, the most wasteful council in the history of local government says the appropriate amount of time is all the time.

          Julie Davies is just another troughing socialist “redistributing” other peoples money into her own bank account.

          Agitating here means there’s a legal requirement for the employee to have representation. We would have to pay for an independent rep whatever happened. I think we would end up paying more if no union rep was available.

      We could do with more historical perspective in the debate on pilgrims….in particular you should know when and why trade unions were formed…unregulated capitalism in the 19th century produced scandals such as…child labour, adulteration of food, casualisation of labour, the truck system for a start. Trade Unions were at the forefront of reform in these areas. It is clear that many of the current problems in capitalism might have benefited from the scrutiny that trade unions can bring to them. Could phone hacking and dangerous short term speculation by banks have been checked in companies which dont allow union involvement? Well run and ethical private companies know that cooperation with their workforce can give them long term sustainability which is desparately needed. So the use of the phrase ‘ taxpayers money ‘ is simply an attack on public services since in these areas trade unions are still given a role. I’m surpised that your moderation of this site seems to allow pithy and gratuitous insults such the two posted today.

        Your point about the historic role of trade unions is valid but is just that; historic. The purpose they once had hasn’t existed since the 1940s and since then, unions have done their members more harm than good.

        These days they are reduced to being in a single interest movement for the public sector. Their actions are against the wider public interest and are to the detriment of the majority of working people.

        The refusal to accept the Pilgrims scam as depriving the public of front line services for which they pay and to which they are entitled futher proves how remote modern union leadership really is.

    Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

    £35k per year; there are 50,000 families in the UK who get paid this much from the state for doing nothing ( £26k net) and we have Paddy Pantsdown and the Church of England trying to justify it.

    All you ” ordinary” people out there just keep on working and pay the tax then these parasites can enjoy their government funded lifestyles.

    I would love to see a definition from Miliband and his cronies exactly what ordinary is perhaps it is

    (a) sending your kids to private school – Harman and Abbott

    (b) living in a house funded from an offshore account – Chukka

    (c) being paid £57k form a trade union when you are already drawing an MPs wage – Dromey

    The list is jeffin endless

      The problem is the left wing lost the plot years ago. Witness its rant against self employment. some of my relatives are self employed its tough but they love the flixibility and ability to not work if thye do not want to, or tell a client to go away. The problem is the left wing like to easy 9-5 and endless hols etc.

      Yoh can see it in the endless rant about capping benefits why should an ordinary family on benefits get more than someone in work. the left wing think that an open chequebook will do, times are tough this sort of excess should have been dealt with years ago but the left wing were content to splash taxpayers money on individduals who were not going to get a job.

    These people are paid to PREVENT agitation and workplace militancy. These people act like mini bosses and will slap a union member down when their position/line is questioned.

    ‘Buying off’ unions is what this amounts to, and union members are screwed twice over as their subs and taxes go towards keeping these parasites and 5th columnists in position.

    The union leaders love it of course, because they get to sit on their arse with a huge pay cheque. But as anyone who has been in a labour dispute knows, the people you want rid of are the union leaders and ‘full timers’ who will do anything to secure their position whilst making the least possible fuss for the people they see as ‘equals’.

        The pensions ‘disputes’ are nothing but a finely orchestrated token effort by the public sector union leaders. You watch all the union leaders back down one by one, safely in the knowledge that their 6 figure salaries remain unaffected.

        Real disputes, i.e. unorchistrated ones, are usually ignored by the union leaders and their minions – and for good reason: they’re often so remote from the rank and file they haven’t got a clue what’s going on!

        Thatcher’s anti-strike laws are often mistakenly referred to as ‘anti-union’ legislation. These laws provided the perfect excuse for boss-friendly union leaders to ignore the rank and file and bask in the easy life of their union sinecures..
