Denmark - Union mobilises against financial cuts in education - May 31, 2017

The education trade union Gymnasieskolernes Laererforening strongly condemns and is mobilising against the financial cuts imposed on the public education sector. The government plans to cut its education budget by 2% each year over the next four years, with cuts having started in 2016. Last year, the reductions resulted in major layoffs, with teacher numbers down 1,000 out of a total of 14,000. In April 2017, the GL started its campaign of opposition to these measures, with additional campaigns planned for September and October. These will be timed just before the start of Parliament negotiations for the coming fiscal year in November.
