School secretaries across the region will take industrial action this Friday, in a row with the Department of Education over pay. 

A meeting between department officials and the Forsa trade union ended this morning without agreement. 

Forsa says most secretaries earn just 12,500 euro a year and have to sign-on during school holidays. 

Secretaries at up to 1,000 schools across the country will engage in a one-hour work stoppage on Friday morning, and will commence a work-to-rule thereafter.
