The TUI and ASTI will be picketing Department of Education and Skills’ Junior Cycle CPD venue in Donegal Town tomorrow morning (FRI) starting at 8.30am.
The picketing follows the Department of Education and Skills’ decision to organise Junior Cycle Framework CPD for teachers of English despite the current industrial relations dispute and the ASTI/ TUI directives to union members prohibiting attendance at CPD.
The picketing by TUI Executive Committee and ASTI Standing Committee representatives aims to highlight the provocative decision by the Minister for Education and Skills and her Department to proceed with CPD at such a critical stage of this industrial relations dispute.
TUI Vice-President Joanne Irwin from Donegal thanked members for their resolve in ensuring that the industrial action directives are observed.
TUI and ASTI representatives will continue to picket Department of Education and Skills’ Junior Cycle CPD venues over the coming days.
