6th September 2019
School secretaries will stage a rally at education minister Joe McHugh’s office in Letterkenny, county Donegal, at 1pm this Saturday (7th September). There will also be rallies at the DES in Dublin’s Marlborough Street, and at the department’s office in Cornamaddy, Athlone, at 1pm on Saturday.
Each event will feature a small number of speeches and wrap up after about 30 minutes.
INTO has supported the Fórsa campaign for pay justice for school secretaries, most of whom are poorly paid and have irregular, short-term contracts that force them to sign on during the summer holidays and other school breaks.
INTO President Feargal Brougham will address the Dublin rally and members are encouraged to show their support.

- 13:00: Department of Education and Skills, Cornamaddy, Athlone, N37 X659.
- 13:00: Minister McHugh’s office at Grier House, Lower Main Street, Letterkenny, County Donegal.
