TEACHERS across Limerick are on strike this Tuesday morning and have taken to the picket line over pay discrimination.
Members of the Teachers' Union of Ireland (TUI), of which there are more than 19,000 nationwide, are taking action over the failure to end a nine-year regime of pay discrimination, which the Union says risks causing ‘irreparable damage’ to the education system and the service to students.
The 24-hour industrial action is affecting numerous schools across the country today, including post-primary schools, colleges of further and adult education and Institutes of Technology/Technological Universities.
All the Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board run schools and further education centres are being picketed today by TUI members, including:
The strike comes as a result of teachers who entered the profession since 2011 still being paid at a lower rate than their colleagues for carrying out the same work.
TUI is insisting that any new programme for Government must commit to fully and finally ending pay discrimination.
