Our Plan


SIPTU members are campaigning for an Early Years sector that is high quality for children, affordable for parents, sustainable for providers with decent pay for educators.

But to make this happen we need Government to increase investment and support decent pay with a Sectoral Employment Order.

By building support with political parties and independents we are making the Early Years sector a priority that cannot be ignored. 

Our campaigning is making a difference.  

Politicians from all political parties supported greater investment and pay rises for the Early Years sector.

Even Minister Zappone has called on the Early Years sector to join a union and keep campaigning.

By building a strong union we can transform the Early Years sector for the better.

If you're not a union member, find out how joining can make a difference by calling 01 858 6365 or emailing [email protected]
