Slovakia -Teachers organise one-day warning strike -September 13, 2012

The Trade Union of Workers in Education and Science of Slovakia (OZ PŠaV) has organised a one-day warning strike against the lack of investment in education. As reported in last month’s newsletter, unions fear that the €7.85 million cuts in the state budget for education will lead to a cut in salaries for all categories of employees in the education sector. Currently, a teacher’s starting salary is €508 gross and the total education budget, including European funds, is less than 4% of GDP.
