Teachers strike planned for Friday

Unions are continuing their wave of protests, with a teachers strike on Friday that will close most nurseries, primary, and secondary schools. Some universities may also be affected.

Parents should be informed about which schools will be affected.

The teachers unions are calling for funding for schools to rise to 6 percent of GDP by 2010, a continuation of pay scales introduced last year, and guarantees that end-of-year bonuses will be paid.
