AROUND 17,000 TEACHERS from the Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland (ASTI) are to undertake industrial action from next Wednesday, with members set to withdraw from meetings outside of normal school hours, in service training and parent-teacher meetings.

The General Secretary Pat King said the action would only affect students “marginally” and the ASTI have appealed for the public’s support.

The vote for industrial action took place after the union voted to reject the Haddington Road Agreement last Friday.

Today’s topic therefore is: Do you agree with the ASTI’s plan for industrial action?

Poll Results:

No (3264)
Yes (1580)
