Luxembourg -Teachers and minister back to the table -July 16, 2015

After a failed mediation process, reported in the June and January newsletters, the ministry of education has prepared new proposals to be presented to teachers’ unions. The dispute between the teachers and the ministry is about an educational reform, which would cut costs by reducing teachers’ pay during exam times and abolishing the shorter working hours older teachers enjoy. After a medication attempt failed last month and teachers’ unions announced strike actions for September, the ministry of education has now tabled new proposals. Trade unions have reacted disappointed that the proposals reached the press before the negotiators, but have agreed to consider them.
