School Secretaries Announce 2020 Days Of Strike Action.

: 12/09/2019 - 16:48

School secretaries will strike for a day next year in an escalation of a row over pay.

The Forsa union says, which represents 11 secretaries in Kildare and around 250, nationwide,  they will go back to industrial action after discussions at the Workplace Relations Commission broke down today.

An offer to increase their pay by 1.5 percent has been rejected as most school secretaries earn just 12,500 euro a year and have to sign on during holidays.

The strike will take place on January 10th and will be followed by a work to rule.
