DkIT and TUI must meet to discuss strategic future of the Institute – Gerry Adams TD

Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams and Councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú have called for talks between DkIT and the TUI. 

Deputy Adams commented following recent media coverage which suggests possible industrial action by TUI members at DkIT.

Gerry Adams said;

“I have met with the President of DkIT Michael Mulvey many times.

“We have discussed a range of issues relating to the Institute, including the future status of DkIT.

“I understand that DkIT is currently involved in a strategic planning process which will explore possible future designations for the Institute.

“I know that staff have indicated their overwhelming support for the pursuance of Technological University status.

“I have written to Michael Mulvey and the TUI to request that they meet as soon as possible to find a resolution to current difficulties.”

Councillor Ó Murchú added;

“Sinn Féin supports the development of Technological University status for DkIT alongside the deepening of ties to other educational institutions across the region, including in the north. 

“We have written to Michael Mulvey on this matter and I will meet with him this week to discuss further.”
