School secretaries are due at the talks table today in their dispute about what they say is a two tier pay system.
They currently earn around 12,500 euro a year without holiday pay and pensions. This includes many school secretaries in this region.
They say they are carrying out the same duties as secretaries employed by education and training boards, who have full public service conditions.
Head of education with Forsa Andy Pike says the Minister for Finance needs to engage with the secretaries.
