Slovakia - Teachers end strike - October 31, 2016

The Slovak Teachers Initiative (ISU) announced the end of the ‘graded strike’ they launched in September, on 19 October, during a protest march called The March of Responsibility. Originally, teachers declared the gradual strike would continue until 25 October when four lessons would have been dropped at some schools. The ISU believes that it’s now up to the Education and Science Employees Trade Union Association (OZPSaV) to take over the initiative and insist on the demands included in a declaration signed by school organisations in February. These requirements include a demand for an increase in teachers’ salaries of 25% as of 1 January 2017 and by 10% annually in following years.
