Secondary Schools could close if teachers’ industrial action goes ahead

Secondary schools in Carlow, Kilkenny and around the country could be set to close this autumn if industrial action goes ahead.

The result of a ballot of ASTI members is expected to be released today, with the organisation already saying industrial action is very likely.

The teachers’ union will hold a protest outside the Dáil this evening over pay levels for new teachers.

ASTI President Ed Byrne says there can be no compromise.
