More ASTI strike days 'a possibility'

The president of the Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland (ASTI), Ed Byrne, is not ruling out more strike days after the current schedule, if the dispute is not resolved.

Tomorrow is the first of seven planned days of industrial action between now and December.

Mr Byrne says if the situation is not resolved after this campaign, they will review their plans.

He said: "We're school teachers, we have the good of our students at heart and obviously we'd have to review it (the strike campaign) with regard to strategy.

"But it is a possibility."
