The Department of Education has made "significant" concessions.

A national one-day strike by school secretaries and caretakers, due to take place today, has been deferred.

Around 12 Forsa member school secretaries in Kildare were expected to take part.

The union says the deferral is as the Department of Education has made significant concessions in a Workplace Relations Commission-brokered negotiation on Monday

.

Fórsa says the department conceded all school secretaries should be placed on the public service clerical officer scale, bringing an end to a two-tier pay system.

The union says work remains to be done on the details of a similar package for caretakers, but the department agreed the same principles would apply.

Shane Lambert, Forsa's Assistant General Secretary, joined Ciara Noble on Wednesday's edition of Kildare Today.
