School secretaries will be taking industrial action today, in a row over pay.
They'll hold a one-hour work stoppage when schools open their gates this morning, in anger over a two-tier low-pay system.
Their union says the uneven pay system for school secretaries is outdated and fails to properly value their work.
Forsa says they're taking the step as there was no breakthrough at Wednesday's talks with the Department of Education.
