Education Minister Says He Can't Commit To A Timeline To End Pay Inequality For Teachers

The announcement that the Government will initiate a pay review process for a cohort of teachers has been cautiously welcomed. 

Those who entered the profession between 2011 and 2014 are paid less than their colleagues. 

Minister Joe McHugh told primary school teachers at the INTO conference in Galway this morning that the issue of pay is 'unfinished business'. 

However he made no promises that pay equality would be achieved.
