Teachers to strike again

Teachers in Slovakia will stage another strike following a protest at the end of May criticising the cabinet's policies in the education sector.

The teacher's unions say they are unhappy with the lack of funds allotted to the sector by the cabinet, and want the government to grant teachers a "realistic wage rise", said union boss Ján Gašperan.

Teachers are among the country's worst-paid professionals. In addition, many Slovak schools are heavily indebted to energy providers and some have closed down as a result.

The strike will take place sometime before the end of this month.
