TUI, ASTI recommend ballot of members on Haddington Road pay deal
The teachers’ unions both decided today to recommend a ballot of their members. The move comes after a number of unions accepted the deal.

TEACHERS’ UNIONS THE Teachers Union of Ireland (TUI) and Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland (ASTI) have both decided to recommend a ballot of their members on the Haddington Road pay deal.

Bernie Ruane of the TUI told that they came to a decision this evening after discussions with the ASTI.

The ASTI has also agreed to recommend to ballot its members, but Ruane said its process would be different to the TUI’s.

She said that the TUI have not discussed the issue of whether they will recommend their members vote a particular way in the ballot.

The members will be asked to vote in September.

Earlier today, gardaí, nurses and midwives signed up to the new pay deal.

The Haddington Road public pay deal comes after the Croke Park II deal was roundly rejected by unions.
