It’s looking increasingly likely that a number of local schools will remain closed on Monday.
The Department of Education’s due to resume talks with the ASTI today in a bid to avert a major closure of schools.
It’s feared over 400 secondary schools – including some in Carlow and Kilkenny – will close indefinitely from Monday, if a row over pay isn’t resolved this weekend.
The ASTI says its members will report for teaching duties – but won’t carry out supervision or substitution – which means schools can’t open due to health and safety issues.
Minister Paul Kehoe’s urging the union to row back on their pay claims.
