Delfin English Language Teachers Strike

Delfin dispute escalates, English Language Teachers strike!

Full-day stoppage follows management’s refusal of collective bargaining.

Trade union Unite, which represents all teachers working in Delfin English School, will picket the school Delfin Dublin from  09.00 hrs to 18.00 hrs  October 7th.  The escalation of this dispute follows repeated attempts by Unite to engage with management in a bid to address workers’ concerns.

 “Management has consistently refused to address teachers’ concerns or to negotiate with them collectively through the union of their choice, leaving workers with no option but to take industrial action said Unite Regional Officer Brendan Byrne, further stating that

“Our members have been trying to address a range of issues from low pay to unpaid breaks and what amount to temporary lay-offs over Christmas.

“The resolution of this dispute is in the hands of management: they just need to pick up the phone and talk to their workers through their union, Unite.

“This is the first strike action in a sector where precarious working conditions are the norm.  Unless schools move to engage with workers collectively, it is unlikely that tomorrow’s action will be the last in the sector”, Mr Byrne warned.
