Teacher Unions split over pay deal


Posted by SchoolDays Newshound on 04/06/2015. Teacher Unions split over pay dealTags: Education And Politics Teachers


A split has emerged between the teacher unions on the Lansdowne Road Agreement. The TUI has decided to recommend that it’s members reject the new pay agreement proposals while the INTO will be recommending it’s members vote Yes.

According to TUI President, Gerry Quinn, second level teachers “are frustrated and disillusioned by the extra hours of bureaucracy and administration required under the Croke Park and Haddington Road Agreements,…… it is completely unacceptable that they would form part of any future agreement.’

Meanwhile Independent.ie quotes INTO general secretary Sheila Nunan as saying acceptance of the agreement was an opportunity to begin to recover income that had been lost through pay cuts and the public service pension levy.

The INTO is making arrangements to ballot its members this month while the TUI ballot is not expected to take place until the autumn
