Change to online payslips for Department of Education Employed Teachers

We request that the DES change from printing and posting payslips to teachers in Ireland every two weeks and use an online system.

Why is this important?

Currently the cost to the DES to print and post is over two million euros each year. This money could easily be diverted to buildings, teacher allocation, AEN allocation or student capitation. The fiscal cost does not take into account the environmental cost in paper, ink or transport. Teachers have requested this change time and time again to no avail- it’s now time to change this archaic practice and use the savings to improve student experience.
