INTO members 'to make up own minds' on Croke park extension

The country's largest teachers union has decided not to advise its members which way to vote on the revised Croke Park Agreement.

The Irish National Teachers' Organisation (INTO) is putting the pay proposals drawn up by the LRC to its 32,000 primary school teacher members without a recommendation.

Two other teachers' unions - the Teachers Union of Ireland and the Irish Federation of University Teachers - are both calling on their members to oppose the cuts to pay and pensions.

INTO spokesperson, Peter Mullan, said their members would make up their own minds, and vote in a postal ballot in the next few weeks.

"The executive will send information on the details of the proposals to all members to help them make a decision over the coming weeks," he said.
