WIT Young Fine Gael welcomes the end to ongoing WIT Dispute

WIT Young Fine Gael (YFG) is delighted that the ongoing dispute between the Teacher's Union of Ireland (TUI) and Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) will no longer effect WIT students. The dispute had resulted in students being adversely affected following a vote by the TUI branch to engage in industrial action and withhold exam results from students.

Following calls from WIT Young Fine Gael and other parties for the dispute to be resolved, talks concluded on Thursday with an offer from the college being accepted by the TUI. As a result, the process of issuing exam results to students and the setting of new exam scripts can now go ahead.

WIT Young Fine Gael calls now on both parties to ensure that there is no further unnecessary delay in the issuing of exam results. WIT Young Fine Gael chairman Kevin O'Sullivan today said:

"We are delighted to see that both parties have listened to our calls and have now agreed to continue negotiations without affecting the students of this college. It was an absolute disgrace that students were caught up in a dispute that had effectively nothing to do with them.

We hope that in the event of any future dispute, the students of WIT will not be used as a bargaining chip.

It is important now that the students receive their results and we call on both parties to issue the exam results promptly and without any further unnecessary delay. Enough time has been lost and with the upcoming Professional Development Week and Easter break, it is important that these periods do not cause the result issuing process to be delayed."
