Teachers’ unions reject government pay offer

Unions representing Slovak public school teachers and other school staff, who are currently engaged in a dispute over pay and other issues with the government, have rejected a pay rise offered by the cabinet.

Unions representing Slovak public school teachers and other school staff, who are currently engaged in a dispute over pay and other issues with the government, have rejected a pay rise offered by the cabinet.

They said that although the offer was presented as a 7.5-percent pay rise, it only guaranteed a 5-percent rise, with the remaining increase to come from supposed administrative savings. The government had already offered the teachers a 5-percent rise before they started striking last week. They are seeking a 10-percent rise.

Union leaders said their strike, which was suspended on November 28 after three days, will not resume before Christmas, but that other mass protests may be held.
