Teaching unions kick to touch on meetings ban

John Walshe and Anne-Marie Walsh

SECONDARY teachers have delayed a decision about lifting directives banning parent-teacher and planning meetings outside of school hours.

An ASTI committee decided to refer the matters to a special meeting on September 11.

The Teachers' Union of Ireland executive will discuss the issues tomorrow.

Both unions had rejected the revised pay deal while primary teachers' union, the INTO, accepted it.

Meanwhile, the executive committee of the Civil, Public and Services Union will hold a crucial meeting today to see if the unions should ballot on the deal.
