We are calling on Richard Bruton TD, the Minister for Education and Skills, to meet with teachers' representatives in order to improve the working conditions of English Language teachers in English language schools.
Why is this important?
English Language teachers generally lack basic workers’ rights such as sick and holiday pay, pay scales, payment for training/professional development, permanent contracts/ contracts of indefinite duration (regardless of length of service), maternity/paternity pay, and access to pensions.
The Unite ELT branch committee have requested a meeting with minister Richard Bruton which has been refused.
We are asking you to support our campaign calling on the minister to meet with representatives of English Language Teachers to discuss regulations governing basic working conditions for teachers.
