« BackASTI Kerry warns of all-out strike

Teachers protest strikeThe ASTI representative for members in Kerry and Limerick says there’ll be an all-out strike from November 7th unless the Government meets their demands.

The secondary teachers’ union wants pay for new teachers to be restored to pre-economic crash levels.

It’s also looking for pay for supervision and substitution duties.

The union’s being penalised by the Government because it rejected the Lansdowne Road agreement for public sector workers.

Matthew O’Connor is the ASTI representative for Kerry and Limerick.
