Joint Union Rally on Pay Equality
A demonstration held by the three teacher unions at the Dáil has called for publication of a report on Pay Inequality, required under the recent Public Service Pay and Pensions Act, to kick start the process of restoring pay equality. Teachers who qualified since 2011 have already lost up to €30,000 each due to their reduced pay rates.
INTO President John Boyle said: “This damaging and utterly unfair imposition of unequal pay must be ended. The report required under the Pay and Pensions Act must be a clear first step on the road back to equality. We must also see the end of that road. Does the government really believe in equal pay for equal work? It is time for them to commit to righting the wrong imposed since 2011.”
