THE TEACHERS’ UNION of Ireland is to put the Croke Park extension proposals to its members in a ballot – and is recommending they reject them.

In a statement this evening, the TUI said that its executive committee met this afternoon to consider the proposals that emerged from public service talks as they apply to the education sector.

It added:

The overwhelming view was that the proposals are deficient in many respects.

The TUI executive has decided that the proposals should be put to a ballot of TUI members, with a recommendation to reject.

The TUI represents in excess of 15,000 members at second and third level.

RTÉ reports that a second teachers’ union, the Irish Federation of University Teachers, has also recommended its members vote against the proposed agreement.

This morning, the AHCPS, which represents more than 2,700 public sector workers, also recommended a No vote on Croke Park II.
