ASTI leaders have met today to consider a decision by its members to support industrial action over COVID-19 safety in schools and equal pay.

Secondary teachers voted in favour of action on a number of issues earlier this week, including a redefinition of what constitutes a close contact in the classroom, test turnaround times of 24 hours and provisions for teachers in the high-risk health category.

Priscilla Lynch, clinical editor of the Medical Independent, joined us to discuss these issues and the recall of antibacterial products in schools.

We were also joined by Tadhg Daly of Nursing Homes Ireland, who spoke about how our nursing homes are coping with COVID-19.
