Standing Committee/ CEC decisions on future actions

Friday 20 January 2017

In addition to current industrial actions, Standing Committee and Central Executive Council have made a number of decisions to be implemented in the event of a rejection of the Outcome of Talks Proposals.

These actions will include:

  • ASTI members will continue with the withdrawal from the 33 Croke Park hours.
  • The ASTI Directive on Junior Cycle will remain in place.
  • The mandate to take strike action on the issue of recently qualified teachers remains in force.
  • There will be an orderly withdrawal from the supervision and substitution scheme. (It may be necessary to continue doing supervision and supervision unpaid for a period of time to ensure schools do not close). 
  • ASTI members will be balloted to withdraw co-operation with initiatives in schools to be agreed by Standing Committee or CEC.
  • If necessary, principals or acting principals will be balloted to refuse to co-operate with any request to identify teachers for redundancies.
  • In the event of an ASTI member being made redundant as a result of the redeployment scheme being withdrawn from ASTI members, ASTI will ballot its members to take industrial action, up to and including strike action.
