Slovenia - Decent pay for assistants in education - October 31, 2016

For many years, the Education, Science and Culture Trade Union of Slovenia (ESTUS) has consistently pointed out and appealed to the government and the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport that the situation of teacher assistants has been deteriorating. The government has recognised the teacher assistants’ low salary; nevertheless, the situation has worsened. Therefore, ESTUS called for a protest action in front of the government headquarters in Ljubljana. 2,500 teacher assistants from across the country gathered. With this protest, having waited for 8 years, ESTUS called the government to immediate negotiations and to fulfil the commitment to guarantee quality education based on decent working conditions of those providing education in pre-schools and other education institutions.
