A new collective wage agreement for teachers was signed and the strike, which lasted almost three weeks, came to an end, according to the head of the negotiating committee. Teachers have demanded that wages be increased in line with comparable professions, as previously promised in an agreement with the state. According to the new agreement teachers’ work evaluation will include more areas such as the number and the workload of students and pupils, their background and combination in a group, teaching and learning methods, preparation and teaching hours, paper work, setting of assignments, examination, marking, feedback, competence level, and possibly more aspects.
