The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) is calling for next week’s Budget to reverse cuts which have been most damaging to marginalised students. TUI has identified cuts to guidance counselling provision and middle management positions such as year head as having been particularly damaging within the school community.
The Teaching Council has commenced a review of conditions attached to teachers’ registrations. Letters have been issued to all teachers whose conditions have an expiry date of 31 December 2015. Emails will be issued in the coming weeks.
In light of the current dispute within the postal service, the closing date for receipt of ballot papers on the proposed Lansdowne Road Agreement has been extended until 5pm on Wednesday October 14th. This may be subject to review depending on developments.
The following letter was published in the Irish Independent on Saturday, 3rd October 2015
TUI is recommending that members vote 'NO' to reject the proposed Lansdowne Road Agreement (Public Service Stability Agreement 2013-2018).
