Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams has said that the President of DkIT should engage with TUI members regarding the future strategic direction of the Institute.
Deputy Adams commented following recent media coverage which suggests possible industrial action by TUI members at DkIT.
Gerry Adams said:
“I have met with the President of DkIT Michael Mulvey on numerous occasions on a range of issues.
“At each meeting I have made enquiries regarding the future status of DkIT in relation to the establishment of a Technological University.
“I understand that DkIT is currently involved in a strategic planning process which will explore possible future designations for the Institute.
“I know that staff have indicated their overwhelmingly support for the pursuance of Technological University status in the consultation for the Strategic Plan 2020-2022.
“I have written to Michael Mulvey to request that he engage with TUI representatives on the campus and I look forward to the publication of DkIT’s Strategic Plan early in the New Year.”
