Iceland -Educators strike after failure of bargaining -March 18, 2014

A failure of the negotiations on a new collective agreement for secondary school teachers led to a strike call by the Kennarasamband Islands (KI). The previous agreement for secondary school teachers expired on 31 January 2014, and, after 30 bargaining meetings without reaching an agreement, the strike was called for and started in the morning of 17 March. The trade union for upper secondary teachers, including vocational education teachers, employed by the state, underlined that the collective agreement is not only about improving teachers’ wages, but also enhancing education and school environments for the good of society.
