AIBU Maternity Discrimination

Hi all,

I'm looking for a bit of advice from people! I am a FULL TIME Secondary school Science teacher currently on maternity leave. I am due to go back to work in February.
A few days ago the Headteacher sent me a copy of my timetable for when I start back to work. There are four of us in our department, two of us F/T and two P/T.
My hours have been drastically reduced on my timetable. My timetable is the only one to be affected. Now when I am not teaching I will be doing cover lessons and general support.
I also no longer have a tutor group and my lunch time duty has been swapped.
The lessons I am teaching are no longer my specialist areas and I have lost both of my GCSE classes.
My role has been watered down and I feel that I am going back to a completely different job.
Very little communication from my employees to date despite my concerns.

I have spoken to my Union and they have shared my concerns. WWYD? Be thankful for a job or fight your corner when potentially not valued anyhow? Would my job be made more difficult?

Very stressed! Advice please x

Have you spoken to the headmaster since receiving the timetable as to why there's such a drastic change? Arrange a face-to-face meeting to discuss? Could it be because you're returning midway through the school year he doesn't want to disrupt existing classes with a new teacher?
