Teachers From Grafton College Organise Lunchtime Rally


Share this article


Teachers have organised a lunchtime rally today between 12.30 and 2 pm outside Grafton College. They say they don't accept that the owner 'doesn't have a penny' to pay them. They occupied the Portobello school last night after it went into liquidation, leaving staff without a job and owed a month's wage.

The demonstration ended at around 1am after they were asked to leave. Legislation which will better protect the rights of English language teachers is due before the Dail tomorrow.

Social Democrats candidate Sarah Durcan visited the teachers yesterday evening.

She says it's totally unacceptable that they and their students have been 'left in the lurch' and she's calling for urgent regulation of the English language school sector.
