The following information has issued to branch officers and workplace representatives.
Members of the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) have voted by a margin of 63% to 37% (on a turnout of 57%) to accept a proposed agreement with the Department of Education and Skills.
Based on discussion with the Department of Education and Skills (DES) and in accordance with the verbal assurance provided by Mr Kevin Foley (then Director of Conciliation at the Labour Relations Commission), the TUI’s clear understanding is that there is nothing in Sections 3.2 or 4 of the Lansdowne Road Agreement (LRA) that prevents the union taking action in regard to matters of key concern to members. In that context the union is aware that it is the expectation of the DES that the union would, in accordance with standard practice, utilise normal IR machinery/agreed procedures in advance of taking such action.

Voting YES for the proposed DES/TUI agreement – which involves being covered by the LRA - will allow the TUI to prosecute to successful conclusion our campaign for pay parity. The Programme for Government is clear in indicating that the matter can be addressed only within a collective agreement, using the soon to be established Public Sector Pay Commission. The relevant collective agreement from 1st July is the LRA.
