Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: General Affairs Council, Brexit, Future of Europe and Western Balkans: Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (7 Mar 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: ...with logistics, driver training for the use of heavy good vehicles, etc. There is no Irish representation in that particular group but a former colleague of mine, an assistant general secretary in the TUI, actually attracted that conference. I hope we will see some co-operation on apprenticeships. The Minister of State addressed social dialogue and the gender pay gap, which is a...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills: State Examinations: Discussion (6 Mar 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Fiona O'Loughlin: ...the topic of continuous assessment for State examinations. On behalf of the joint committee, I welcome Ms Moira Leydon, assistant general secretary of the ASTI; Ms Joanne Irwin, president of the TUI; Mr Oisín Hassan, vice president for academic affairs, USI; Mr. Geoff Browne, president of the national parents' council post-primary, and Mr. Lewis Purser, director of academic affairs,...

Seanad: Technological Universities Bill 2015: Report Stage (21 Feb 2018)

Alice Mary Higgins: ..., being included, which was the proposal from our colleagues across the House in the Labour Party, was blocked. While the Minister of State will say that we have the Teachers Union of Ireland, TUI, we have the representatives of the interests of the staff. If one wanted to have the stakeholders in society, surely unions are as much stakeholders in society in that wider perspective as...

Seanad: Order of Business (7 Feb 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: ...Getting somebody from Belmullet, Clifden or Dingle in Kerry to a trauma centre in Dublin or Cork simply cannot be done in an ambulance. I have driven every road in Ireland both as president of the TUI and a candidate on the Seanad trail and I can assure the House it is difficult enough driving across some of them sitting in the front seat of a car. I do not know what it would be like...

Seanad: Technological Universities Bill 2015: Committee Stage (7 Feb 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: In response to my colleague, Senator Ó Céidigh, he is 100% correct. I have worked through the institutes of technology as president of the TUI. I never encountered anything but co-operation in the institutes but the amendment is to ensure that there will be no undue influence at any time in the future. I know most of the people in office now. I have worked with them and their...

Seanad: Order of Business (6 Feb 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: I join my colleague, Senator Michael McDowell, in his comments with regard to Israel. During my time as president of the TUI, the organisation voted to have an academic boycott of Israel. It brought all hell down on us from both official and unofficial Israel. It does not like being told what to do. How dare it tell us what we can or cannot do.

Seanad: Statement by the Taoiseach (1 Feb 2018)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: ...work and it does not matter where he or she comes from. I attended a protest today outside Gaelcholáiste in Carlow. I gave my full support to the teachers and the Teachers Union of Ireland, TUI. The inequality in teachers' pay has contributed in no small way to the current shortage of teachers. The same situation has affected the crisis in nursing. Many of our graduates are...

Seanad: Technological Universities Bill 2015: Second Stage (Resumed) (31 Jan 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Paul Gavan: ...and to propose amendments which provide for effective student representation as set out in the HEA's own best-practice policies. I commend the Minister of State and the Department on their engagement with the TUI to strike an agreement and address the key concerns of staff. On behalf of Sinn Féin, I note that we will not support amendments or aspects of the Bill which may seek to...

Shortage of Teachers: Motion [Private Members] (24 Jan 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Tommy Broughan: ...who are concerned that some students may be missing out on stable expert instruction in important subjects. The lack of substitute teachers is also highlighted as a real concern. The ASTI, INTO and TUI trade unions made a submission to the Public Service Pay Commission in which they highlighted the need for pay inequality to be urgently rectified. Not only do new entrants start at a...

Written Answers — Department of Education and Skills: Public Sector Pay (16 Jan 2018)

Richard Bruton: ...Unions has notified the Workplace Relations Commission that its affiliate unions have assented to be bound by the Public Service Stability Agreement. Accordingly, members of such unions including ASTI, TUI and INTO are covered by the Agreement. As such, all teachers who are due to receive an increment in 2018 will receive it with effect from the normal due date of the increment. The...

Written Answers — Department of Education and Skills: Departmental Reviews (16 Jan 2018)

Richard Bruton: In May 2016 agreement was reached with the TUI in the context of the Lansdowne Road Agreement and under the auspices of the WRC that a review of lecturing would would be carried out. Officials in my Department are in ongoing discussions with the parties to the agreement with a view to agreeing a format for the review as soon as possible.

Technological Universities Bill 2015: Report Stage (14 Dec 2017) See 6 other results from this debate

Kathleen Funchion: ...and makes a lot of sense. If we are looking at our education system and trying to make it somewhat progressive, we should be looking at representing students. There was a lot of talk about the TUI and staff, and that is very important but we need to take the student voices into account. I feel strongly that having a representative body does not go far enough. It leaves the power to...

Seanad: Public Service Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Committee and Remaining Stages (14 Dec 2017)

Gerard Craughwell: I side with Senator Conway-Walsh. A good job was done in negotiating the agreement but I was president of the Teachers Union of Ireland, TUI, when the first FEMPI was negotiated. It was tough going. Croke Park II collapsed and we went on to make the Lansdowne Road agreement. There was always deep-seated resentment at the fact that the FEMPI legislation brought in punitive measures for...

Seanad: Public Service Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Second Stage (12 Dec 2017)

Gerry Horkan: ...to all of us that they are put on a stable footing. The agreement was ratified by the ICTU, which means that it is agreed across the board. However, individually, the three teacher unions, the ASTI, the TUI, and the INTO, have yet to ratify the agreement. How this will be dealt with is an outstanding issue. As chair of a school board in a school with staff who are members of different...

Public Services Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed) and Remaining Stages (7 Dec 2017)

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...in section 21. Teachers should not have to endure that inequality within the profession and are finding it intolerable. It will not encourage anyone to enter the profession. I understand the TUI membership is particularly affected because 35% of its members are new entrants. It is hoping that number will increase, provided people enter the profession. Surveys show that there is a...

Public Service Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed) (5 Dec 2017) See 2 other results from this debate

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...other public servants should take from the Minister's response is that they should continue to campaign on this issue because their campaign is working. It is clearly the pressure of the ASTI, the TUI and the INTO, in coming together to oppose the latest deal which does not fully restore pay or deal with pay equality, that has forced the Government to acknowledge the depth of feeling and...

Public Service Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Committee Stage (5 Dec 2017) See 1 other result from this debate

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...Maurice McCabe once upon a time in the Houses, but FEMPI is disgusting. For the Government to perpetuate this and punish people who stand up against it is unjustified. I commend the bravery of the ASTI, the TUI, the INTO, the nurses' unions and so on who have spoken out against this. I hope that the revolt against this pay apartheid and emergency legislation will escalate until we...

Public Service Pay and Pensions Bill 2017: Second Stage (29 Nov 2017) See 2 other results from this debate

Séamus Healy: ..., as has been inflicted recently on members of the Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland, ASTI. A number of unions are opposed to the measures in the Bill. The Teachers' Union of Ireland, TUI, has asked members to contact their public representatives about it. I received a letter today from a member of the TUI and I will read it into the record. It states:I am requesting that...

Mary Mitchell O'Connor: ...for the approach to the development of technological universities. As part of that process a clarification document was subsequently agreed between the Department, the Teachers' Union of Ireland, TUI, and the Technological Higher Education Association. TUI members voted to accept the agreement in June 2017 and suspended its industrial action in relation to the development of the...

Select Committee on Education and Skills: Technological Universities Bill 2015: Committee Stage (15 Nov 2017)

Thomas Byrne: ...concern the halfway house that was originally proposed. It was very unfortunate. I do recognise the work that has been done to allay our concerns and the concerns of many within the sector, the TUI and the institutions themselves that institutions could merge, apply for technological university status and then find they did not get it. There would have been huge uncertainties there...
