Trade Unions

March 10, 2016

Early Childhood Ireland has met with two trade unions in recent weeks, Impact and SIPTU, as part of our work in pursuing the professionalisation of the sector. Both trade unions have expressed their interest in professionalisation and have been active in separate processes in recent weeks in pursuit of their goals, including campaigns and holding regional meetings. We are pleased that both trade unions are eager to recognise the early childhood sector and the importance of working for greater supports and investment in the sector.

Early Childhood Ireland CEO Teresa Heeney has been invited to present at an Impact event which will take place on 31st March at Croke Park. We are happy to continue sharing information with our members so that they can make informed decisions on how they wish to proceed.
