Strike Day tomorrow

19th January 2015




Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s)

The teaching unions TUI and ASTI have informed the ETB that all TUI and ASTI union members have been directed to take strike action on Thursday 22nd January. Pickets will be placed on all schools, colleges and education centres that offer the Junior Cycle where TUI or ASTI members are employed on that day.

In the case of the strike going ahead on 22nd January, the ETB will not be in a position to discharge its responsibilities with regard to the care of students in its charge.

The ETB is therefore requesting you to keep your son(s) and/or daughter(s) at home from school on Thursday 22nd January.



Yours sincerely




Sean Ashe

Chief Executive
