Ireland -Permanent employment rights and extra pay for teachers -March 30, 2015

Each teacher is due to receive about €900 in arrears and an indefinite contract after a continuous period of more than 2 years.

The Department of Education has planned casualization reforms giving teachers a contract of indefinite duration after a period of continuous employment in excess of two years, rather than three. Separately, the department confirmed that money owed under the Haddington Road agreement to about 1,500 teachers who joined the profession in 2011-2012 will be paid in the payroll on April 9th. Each teacher is due to receive about €900 in arrears after teacher unions renegotiated the entry grade from 2012 onwards.
