« BackITT staff to be balloted on industrial action Tags – ITT, TUI. ballot

TUI staff at the Institute of Technology in Tralee are to be balloted next week on a campaign of industrial action.

The TUI says it is taking the action in the face of education cuts and legislation which it says will cement pay reductions imposed during the recession.
It says that there has been chronic under-funding of the Institutes of Technology, critically low staffing levels and poor student support.
TUI staff at the ITT will be balloted on whether they agree to engage in a campaign of industrial action up to and including strike action.
