National ballot on Online and Digital Learning - Vote ‘YES’ to engage in industrial action
Due to the refusal of the Official Side to concede TUI’s claim to secure a national agreement on the development and delivery of online and digital learning in Institutes of Technology and TU Dublin, TUI is balloting Third Level members as directed by Annual Congress.
The question on the ballot paper will ask:
In order to secure such an agreement, do you agree to engage in industrial action as directed by the Executive Committee of TUI?
The industrial action will be, systematically and incrementally, to withdraw from all forms of activity relating to the development and delivery of all online modules and all online courses. The industrial action will be phased; in the first instance to refuse to engage in the development of new online learning modules/courses. Subsequent action will be taken as directed by the TUI Executive Committee, having regard to existing local agreements.
