In a wide-ranging address to 500 delegates in Wexford this afternoon, Teachers' Union of Ireland (TUI) General Secretary John MacGabhann tackled a number of issues relating to education and industrial relations including pay discrimination, workload and the housing crisis.

Colleagues and invited guests I would like to welcome you to Wexford, to TUI Annual Congress 2018.  Colleagues, you will know that TUI is a campaigning Union, a broad-based Union informed by our guiding principles of equity, social justice and empowerment of the profession.  We have worked hard in the past year to protect and advance the interests of members but also to protect and enhance the quality of public education at all levels.

Congress 2018 will take place in Wexford between Tuesday, 3rd and Thursday, 5th of April. It will be held in the Clayton Whites Hotel, Abbey Street, Ferrybank South, Wexford. Keep an eye on this website and on TUI's Twitter and Facebook platforms for regular updates throughout the three days.
