Labour Says Government Needs To Act To Avoid Teacher's Strike

The Labour Party says the threat of strike action by teachers must serve as a 'wake-up call' to government.

Members of the Association of Secondary Teachers yesterday voted in favour of industrial action because of concerns stemming from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rapid testing for schools, a redefinition of close contacts and better arrangements for teachers who are high risk, are among the issues raised.
Labour education spokesperson, Aodhan O'Riordain, says Minister Foley needs to urgently take steps to address these concerns
