INTO leaders to recommend acceptance of revised Croke Park 2

The INTO has said it will recommend to its members to accept the revised Labour Relations Commission proposals on Croke Park 2.

At a meeting today, leaders decided to put the new proposals to its 32,000 members in a ballot with a recommendation to accept.

The teachers' union said that potential gains in the original proposals have been fully retained such as the improved scales for newly qualified teachers.

It has also been promised that the supervision and substitution allowance for all teachers, which is to be abolished under the new agreement, will be reinstated in two phases from 2016.

All certified sick leave will be covered as will bereavement leave.

Proposals to cut back on cover was one of the main reasons behind the rejection of the original agreement.
