Socialists: Opposition lawmakers turn to Constitutional Court over law limiting teachers’ right to strike

Opposition lawmakers have asked the Constitutional Court to annul a recently passed law they say has made it "impossible" for teachers to exercise their right to strike, the co-leader of the Socialist Party said on Saturday.

Agnes Kunhalmi told MTI in a statement that the law, tabled by the government, “practically prohibits” teachers from striking by “voiding their right to strike”.

The Socialists have initiated a review of the law, which complies with neither the constitution nor international agreements, with representatives of other opposition parties, she added.
