At all points in our engagements with the Department of Education and Skills, the TUI has made clear that the overarching priority must be the health and safety of students, teachers and others in the wider community.  

These guidelines will no doubt generate many questions and observations from members.

With a view to centralising and collating these, we have set up a dedicated email address – reopening@tuimail.ie.

Please advise members in your branch/workplace to send all related questions/observations to this address.
