Major gains for TUI members in all sectors

In addition to the ongoing campaign for pay parity, real, tangible progress has been made on several other fronts across the Post-Primary, Further/Adult Education and Third Level sectors as a result of negotiations and commitments secured in the DES/TUI Agreement, May 2016, which was accepted by members in a national ballot. (Click here to download text of this agreement).

Details of these gains are set out in the briefing notes sent to branch officers and workplace representatives which are set out below.

Furthermore, the union anticipates more progress on key issues in every sector in the coming months. Keep an eye on this website for updates.

In September 2016, agreement was reached to restore the value of the Honours Primary Degree allowance to the salary of those employed since 1st February 2012. TUI’s campaign will continue until full pay parity has been achieved.

These letters should be read in conjunction with the following:
