School’s out on September 15th for Forsa Secretaries

Although the new school year is still only in its first week – it’s already been confirmed that there will be  disruption for students and teachers later this month.


School secretaries are to stage a one-day strike on September 15th.


Forsa, which represents the workers say they’ve been let down by the Government who still have not implemented standardised pay and conditions for secretaries.


A demonstration will take place outside the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform on September 15th.


Frank Consadine is member of the Forsa union and a school secretary based in the North West.


He says FORA members have been left frustrated by the lack of action by Department officials over the summer months.
