The three biggest teachers' unions have threatened a possible strike as they call to be prioritised for Covid-19 vaccines.
The government has indicated there are no plans to change the rollout plan.
This morning the ASTI, TUI and INTO all supported a ballot of industrial action up to strikes.
The government recently changed the vaccine rollout plan. And it will now be based solely on age, rather than a person’s job.
ASTI general secretary Kieran Christie says the government needs to keep its promise to teachers.
But Education Minister Norma Foley indicated there won’t be changes to the rollout.
Any strike is unlikely to happen before schools close in June, and it’s planned that all adults will have at least got their first jab by the time they reopen in September.
