The Irish National Teachers' Organistaion (INTO) is balloting it's members on industrial action which would result in non-cooperation with school self-evaluation.
The action is in response to the eight year ban on job promotions for teachers which INTO claim is limiting some schools' ability to function effectively and causing an increased workload.
INTO recently stated:
"The continued ban on promotions affects everyone.If you are an un-promoted teacher you are being denied opportunities for promotion.If you are a promoted teacher you are doing additional work because of the ban.If you are a principal teacher you are trying to run a modern school without a full in-school management team."
33,000 primary school teachers will be balloted for the industrial action this week ( 29 February to 3 March)
