ASTI to wait and see as members prepare to vote on proposals

More serious industrial action could be on the way from teachers according to the ASTI’s north west representative.

Rolling strikes and non-co-operation with school inspections are some of the measures being considered by the Association of Secondary Teachers Ireland if members reject a fresh proposed settlement.

The union is to ballot its 17,000 members in January over fresh proposals aimed at ending its industrial across a number of fronts.

In November hundreds of schools nationwide including 22 in Sligo, Donegal and Leitrim were closed due to industrial action.

The 180-member central executive has recommended that members reject the proposals following a meeting at the weekend.

Neil Curran says they will wait and see what the membership decides.
