Ennis-Based TUI Gen Sec Says Running Schools Without Vaccinated Teachers Will Be An Issue

An Ennis-based Assistant General Secretary of the TUI claims the management of schools will become a problem for teachers if they are not vaccinated by September.

All three teaching unions have backed a motion for industrial action up to and including striking unless the age-based priority list for COVID-19 jabs is changed.

Any possible strike is unlikely to happen before September, when it’s planned that all adults will have received at least their first dose of the vaccine.


TUI Assistant General Secretary and former teacher in St Patrick’s Comprehensive in Shannon, Anne Howard, says running schools will be difficult without vaccinated teachers.
