A Message from the New President

 Padraic

RSTA President Padraic O'Doherty addressing Convention 2018

Beannachtaí and best wishes to all R.S.T.A members.

As your recently elected President, I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me to take the RSTA forward on the journey of advancing the welfare of retired secondary teachers, especially in relation to pension parity and social protection.

I thank the outgoing President, Carmel Heneghan, for her work over the past four years.  This was a uniquely challenging period of office with the F.E.M.P.I. legislation, for both active and retired teachers.  She networked with members throughout the country in supporting branches and encouraging new recruits, while continuing with the other duties of office.

I wish to acknowledge the ongoing work of the ASTI in its negotiations for justice on behalf of all teachers, not forgetting the post 2012 pension anomaly.

Congratulations to the Cork organisation in organising the very successful 2018 National Conference.  The welcome received from the local branch and the hotel staff has left a lasting memory.

I now look forward to your continuous support through the branch network and the newly elected National Committee in the year ahead.

Ní neart go cur le chéile.

Padraic O'Doherty

President RSTA
