Netherlands - Teachers’ strike looms - April 30, 2017

Primary school teachers are demanding higher salaries and smaller class sizes. If the new government does not address both these issues in their coalition agreement, the teachers will strike for a week. This was announced by action group PO in Actie and education trade union AOb after both organisations polled their membership. A manifesto with this demand, addressed to the government, will be signed by both unions and employers. The trade union has been calling for higher salaries in primary education for years.
