Event

The Teachers' Union of Ireland (TUI) announced on Friday, January 17, that its 19,000 members would go on strike on Tuesday, February 4. The union is demanding an end to a two-tier pay scale in the sector, which has reportedly resulted in significant pay differences between teachers hired before and after 2011. Some 1100 schools are expected to be impacted by the work stoppage, which is to take place four days before the general election.

Associated protests by striking teachers are possible in the coming days and weeks. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are possible in the vicinity of any demonstrations.

Individuals in Ireland are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all large public gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
