Teachers’ unions call on president not to sign law curbing strike rights

Teachers' trade unions PSZ and PDSZ on Wednesday called on President Katalin Novak not to sign a recent legislation seen as restricting the strike rights of teachers and to refer the contested law to the Constitutional Court for a review.

According to the unions, maintaining strike restrictions introduced during the coronavirus pandemic was unjustified and may not stand the test of constitutionality.

Earlier, the strike committee of teachers voiced protest against stipulations under which teachers would be obliged to continue teaching classes during a strike action, and said the new legislation was “discriminative, retaliative and intimidating”.
