‘Teachers deserve fair pay and conditions’ – Sheehan

Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has expressed his support and solidarity for teachers taking to the picket lines this week.

The party’s education spokesperson said:

“Teachers play an invaluable role in the education of our children and deserve fair pay and safe working conditions.

“It is disgraceful that education staff have again been forced onto the picket lines at a time when workers, including teachers, are facing a huge squeeze on their finances due to the cost of living crisis.

“With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British government must immediately bring forward a pay deal for public sector workers here.

“Public patience has run out. Workers cannot wait any longer. We need an Executive restored now and all parties working together to support public sector workers and services.”
