Teachers will organise a protest rally outside the Ministry of Education and Science. The teachers have been trying to negotiate a collective agreement with the ministry, which trade unions claim is stalling the process. Despite an agreement to solve the dispute via conciliation, the ministry has refused to sign an agreement on the intermediation conditions that is necessary to start the mediation process. Trade unions tabled demands on the right to a collective agreement for education, the reinstatement of education vouchers, raising salaries of pre-school teachers to match the level of secondary school teachers, and the improvement of the base monthly salary. The ministry neither reacted to the union demands, nor to the intermediation conditions.
