Stormont impasse puts Ulster GAA jobs in jeopardy


Young coaches in Ulster face an uncertain future if funding dries up as a result of the latest power-sharing crisis

UP to 30 Ulster GAA coaching jobs are in jeopardy as a direct consequence of the impasse at Stormont and the failure to set a Budget.

The coaches affected, who are all on rolling one-year contracts, have been told they have been placed under ‘protective notice’ for a 90-day period.

Protective notice, as distinct from statutory or contractual notice, informs staff that funding associated with their contract of employment is due to end and confirms this date.

See this week’s Gaelic Life in stores today or online here for more and Ulster GAA’s response.
