The strike week starts on 23 January and ends on 31 January with Solidarity Day.
Following the March for Education, the Democratic Trade Union of Teachers (Pedagógusok Demokratikus Szakszervezete, PDSZ) is preparing to strike again. They wrote the following about the strike week and the Solidarity Day:
“WE CONTINUE the walkout. The rolling strike notice remains in force. We are announcing seven days of national strike action from the Monday after the central secondary school admissions (21 January), 23 January. (Respecting the legitimate expectation of parents that children should not be disadvantaged in their preparation.) Each institution and community can contribute to this with its own solutions. The strike on 23 January must be announced by 16 January at 4 PM at the latest. This action will end with the announcement of a SOLIDARITY DAY on 31 January, the anniversary of the warning strike a year ago.”
As we have also reported, the March for Education reached Budapest tomorrow, after 180 kms. Around half past two, they arrived at Örs vezér Square, from where they went to the Kölcsey Ferenc Secondary School via Heroes’ Square. There, several of them addressed the thousands of people who had gathered.
The march started on Monday morning from the Herman Ottó High School in Miskolc and covered 30 kilometres a day, including several members of the Teachers’ Trade Union (PSZ) and the Democratic Trade Union of Teachers (PDSZ), szmo.hu reports.
