Clare’s INTO Rep Says Potential Industrial Action Won’t Stop Schools Re-Opening Next Weeks

Clare’s INTO Representative says potential industrial action by teachers won’t stop schools from re-opening fully next week.

Teachers unions are joining forces to demand their members are prioritised for covid-19 vaccines, after the priority list was changed last week to an age based approach, rather than focusing on vaccinating certain professions first.

The TUI, INTO and ASTI each began their two day annual conferences this morning and tomorrow a joint emergency motion will be tabled at each event for industrial action.


The ASTI, TUI and INTO leadership has been drawing up a joint motion, with their annual conferences opening today.

Clare INTO Representative Brendan Horan has been telling Clare FM’s Fiona Cahill that there’s a lot of anger amonst teachers.
