ASTI Haddington Road Vote Results Due

The results of an Association of Secondary Teachers (ASTI) ballot is due later today and will decide if secondary schools will face strike action in January.

The association is voting on a revised Haddington Road Agreement devised by the Department of Education and Skills.

ASTI was the only union to vote no to Haddington Road, a move which prompted further negotiations and a second ballot of its members.

The department has warned that a No vote would see it invoke powers under the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act, allowing it to require ASTI members to provide supervision and substitution duties without payment of an allowance for these services from January 17th.
