Staff members at IT Tralee has voted to take industrial action against the proposed merger with CIT.

STAFF members of the Teachers Union Of Ireland (TUI) Branch of IT Tralee have voted to take industrial action regarding the proposed merger between CIT and ITT

The count of the ballot, which was taken last night, resulted in over 84% of the TUI Branch voting in favour of taking industrial action as a result of the merger with the Cork based institute.

The ballot was held last week as a result of what the TUI members describe as a “growing lack of confidence in the process”.

Staff members felt that they were not consulted enough when talks were initially being held.

Some of the actions under consideration as a result of the vote include non-cooperation with the merger activities, followed by work-to-rule and if this yields no progress, then strike action will be considered.

Speaking after the votes were counted, Cyril Gavaghan of the TUI said; “It is gratifying that so many members voted and supported the branch’s position. An 84% vote in favor shows clearly the depth of feeling among members on the issue and is a compelling mandate for the branch officers to bring to any future discussions or negotiations”.
