there have been numerous examples of illegal firing at winbe. the usual practice is to remove a teacher from a school at
a few days' notice, then give them the ultimatum of either resigning, being relocated to an undisclosed location, or becoming
a cover teacher. many teachers choose to resign thinking they have no other option. being relocated means having to start
all over again in a location that may be hundreds of miles from your friends and family. this threat is made especially strong
when the teacher is settled in an area with his family. with the initial issue unresolved, it is unlikely that the teacher
will have any more chance of success in a new school than he did in his old one. cover teachers are walking ghosts, waiting
out their contracts and being sent round to schools that other teachers have refused to go to. all this is accompanied by
hints of pay cuts and the threat of not extending the teacher's contract. it's a humiliating experience.
one teacher got fired for questioning a change in the schedule. another teacher was fired for objecting to phone calls
and text messages to his mobile phone at all hours of the day and night in a deliberate harassment campaign by the head
of winbe matsuo. coincidentally, both teachers were members of the union. a teacher was fired because he found underpants
in his classroom obviously left by a small child. numerous teachers have been sacked during the training session for being
too old. there are also many cases of managers and floor managers pushing teachers out because of personal differences.
there is an easy way to fire someone from a company, sanctioned by law. in fact this is the system outlined in the winbe
regulations. if a worker breaks the rules or displays incompetence, give them a warning. if they repeat the behaviour, give
them another warning and retrain them. if they do it again, retrain them and explain this is their last chance while
giving them their final warning. the next time they offend you can fire them. sadly, winbe chooses to ignore its own regulations
and instead engages in a series of personal vendettas that are typically unrelated to performance or productivity. this leads
to acrimonious battles and confusion on the part of both teachers, managers and students. the energy that is currently focused
on fabricating evidence against capable teachers who have somehow rubbed a manager up the wrong way could be spent on thinking
of ways to increase student numbers, for a start. that winbe is not doing this is reflected in the fact that every single
winbe shcool is in the red.
