TUI hint at ASTI merger

The Teachers Union of Ireland General Secretary John MacGabhann has said it is time to seriously consider merging with the Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland.

In his address to 400 delegates in Kilkenny this afternoon MacGabhann noted it is “illogical, often absurd and certainly wasteful” to have two unions at second level.

He added the TUI and ASTI face common challenges and threats, which they could see off more effectively if they act as one.
