Portugal - Teachers’ wages and working conditions hit hard by austerity - May 31, 2016

Since the beginning of the economic crisis in 2008, education spending has fallen to 3% of the Gross Domestic product, with devastating consequences for the teaching profession. Many years of austerity measures have left more than a quarter of the teachers without job certainty, while salaries are low and employment conditions poor. The largest teachers' organisation, FENPROF, considers the establishment of a national dialogue of the new government with the unions an important step forward for the improvement of the situation.
