Teachers union sets out demands

The PDSZ teacher union, which has formed a strike committee, on Wednesday called on the government to negotiate its demands concerning wages and workload.

The union wants the basic wage for teachers to match that of civil servants, while it calls for other employees working in the sector to receive no less than the minimum wage.

Among further demands, the union also wants the 22 hour limit on classroom teaching to be restored and overtime payments.

PDSZ has asked the government to assign a representative for talks in the next five days.
