Slovakia -Teachers on strike again -November 26, 2012

After a first warning strike (see our September newsletter), teachers took to the streets again to demand higher wages. The government has offered a pay increase of 5%, but unions demand at least 10%. According to estimates, about 80% of primary schools, 90% of secondary schools and 30% of universities were closed due to the strike, which was joined by kindergarten staff. It is unclear how long the strikes will last.
