School secretaries return to WRC

The School Secretaries branch of Fórsa trade union has accepted an invitation to return to talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) about the ongoing dispute over the two-tier pay system affecting two-thirds of the estimated 3,000 school secretaries nationwide.

The WRC has requested that the ongoing work to rule be suspended to allow these talks to progress. Fórsa has confirmed that work-to-rule action by school secretaries, which commenced last Monday (13 January), will be suspended from 9am tomorrow morning (21 Tuesday) in order to facilitate the WRC talks.
