Teachers to strike for three days
Public nursery schools will be closed until Thursday next week due to a protest by the Panhellenic Federation of Workers’ Associations (POE-OTA). The union is protesting the government’s decision to increase civil servants’ working hours from 37.5 to 40 per week. All teachers at state nursery schools and kindergartens will be on strike on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, they will be taking part in a 24-hour general strike called by public and private sector unions.
