Support For School Secretaries

Early Childhood Education

TD for Dublin South West Seán Crowe has reiterated his support for school secretaries in their pursuit for equal treatment with their school colleagues. Teachta Crowe said that it was disappointing that it took the threat of strike action for the government to take these workers seriously having refused to deal with the issue for years.

Teachta Crowe said: “School secretaries have fought for decades for pay equality, fair treatment, and pension entitlements. “I commend the school secretaries and their representatives in the FÓRSA Trade Union for their dedication to this campaign and the ballot for strike action. “It is a pity that it took the threat of strike action for the government to take this matter seriously.

“There is still work to be done to secure full equality for school secretaries and Sinn Féin will continue to stand with the secretaries and support them as they continue their campaign in pursuit of pension entitlements and full equalisation of sick pay. “School secretaries and caretakers deserve justice and they deserve full equality. Until that is achieved, the campaign continues and Sinn Féin will continue to stand with and lend support to our secretaries and caretakers.”
