Training colleges outraged at 'lack of consultation' on DCU merger
Academics at three Dublin training colleges are discussing their concerns over a DCU merger today.
Staff at St Patrick's Drumcondra, Church of Ireland College of Education and Mater Dei are outraged they have not been consulted about the move.
Irish Federation of University Teachers general secretary Mike Jennings said: "Apart from short bulletins of one or two paragraphs from a body called the Joint Steering Group telling people what has been decided, there has been no actual consultation with us.
"No one has asked us for our input and no one has asked the staff to negotiate on their concerns."
