INTO statement on erroneous publication of staffing arrangements

The erroneous uploading of documents relating to staffing on DE’s website last night has grossly infringed primary principals’ right to disconnect.

The INTO received assurances earlier this week that arrangements relating to next year’s staffing would not issue before the February bank holiday.

We have contacted department officials this morning and insisted the incident be thoroughly investigated. We call on them to explain why this happened and to issue an apology.

We will respond in full when the staffing circular issues next week.
