Teachers braced for Brexit impact, says INTO

Teachers braced for Brexit impact, says INTO

Brexit will have serious and significant negative consequences for teachers across Northern Ireland, teachers are warning.

Speaking at the annual northern conference of the INTO union in Newcastle, Co Down Gerry Murphy said the vote by people in England and Wales to leave the European Union will bring about significant negative consequences for everyone.

"In purely economic terms we will lose £250 million out of the local economy, agriculture and the voluntary and communities sectors in particular will suffer," he said.

"There is a distinct possibility following the divorce that the British government will have to pay hundreds of millions back to Brussels not to mention the additional tariffs imposed on goods to be exported from the UK to the markets in the European Union.

We will continue to campaign for a solution to the issues of pay and workloads. Brexit consequences are not good for teachers."

The conference also focused on a long-running pay dispute which has seen INTO members stage one strike with a second day planned later this month.
