I am experiencing the same problem in secondary, having found my PT and SMT unsympathetic to the fact that I am working at over 0.8FTE this entire year. The only time I can get down to 0.7FTE at all this year is when senior pupils go on study leave in May!
I was put under a lot of pressure not to involve a union and simply accept the situation. I felt I had not choice but to comply. It is unacceptable that new members of the teaching profession are exploited in this way during their induction year.
