Latvia -Teachers ready to strike -November 06, 2013

Around 2,000 teachers and scientists from all over the country participated in a rally at the Saeima building on 24 October to protest the 2014 budget bill and demand respectable salaries. The teachers have now announced plans for a strike over their low salaries. A trade union spokesperson said teachers are ready for reforms and changes, but their salaries remain the lowest in Europe. Due to low salaries and teacher overwork, the country is close to losing education quality.
