« BackASTI rep says decision to strike reflects Kerry members’ feelings

Up to 500 secondary schools face closure next month if teachers go on strike as expected.


ASTI executives are meeting to discuss what form their industrial action will take after members voted to strike.

Teachers are angry that those who qualified after 2011 are paid less than their colleagues, and want the payment for supervision to be restored.

The Kerry ASTI representative says secondary teachers voting to strike reflects what members are saying to him.

Kerry ASTI representative Matthew O’Connor says teachers in the county have been telling him they’re ready to strike over pay and conditions.
