Minister of State, Anne Rabbitte, has welcomed the news that school secretaries and caretakers on low pay with no job security are to have their conditions of employment regularised.
A new preliminary agreement reached at the Workplace Relations Commission on Tuesday will see more than 1000 school secretaries and caretakers receive better working conditions if agreement is reached between all sides.
Minister Rabbitte said:
I welcome this positive news for school secretaries and caretakers who are a pivotal part of each school community. It is welcome progress to see the open dialogue between all parties now on this now and we must continue to do so in the months ahead.
