Today’s initial half day strike action by teacher members of UNITE at the Delfin English Language school on Parnell Square for union recognition and improvements in conditions is the culmination of a long organising campaign.We spoke to one of the workers:
UNITE have been making headway in organising in the English Language Schools and there is a process underway where they hope to achieve a Sectoral Employment Order which would establish a legal floor of a wage rate across the sector.
Achieving an SEO is not the end goal though nor do workers in the sector need to hang about waiting for it to come. If conditions are bad workers can and should organise now, formulate their demands and put them to the employer and be prepared to back it up like the Delfin teachers.
Strong workplace organisation like we see in Delfin is needed across the board. Even with achievement of an SEO there is no cause to assume that it would be observed by all the employers in the sector without a fight
