Teachers’ trade union PDSZ has called a nationwide strike for October 5, World Teachers’ Day, union leaders told MTI on Sunday.
The union’s leadership decided on the strike at a meeting on Friday. PDSZ is asking staff of kindergartens, schools, dormitories and auxiliary educational facilities not to work on October 5. It is also calling on private and public sector unions to organise solidarity strikes or other actions to “make it clear that education is a matter of national importance”.
PDSZ noted that institution heads must be informed of planned strikes no later than September 27, while the number and names of participants must be submitted by September 29.
