Fight for higher wage con­tin­ues

The UB Post - - Domestic -

Teach­ers and ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor staff threat­ened on Thurs­day to launch a demon­stra­tion im­me­di­ately af­ter the New Year’s to ex­press their frus­tra­tion with the gov­ern­ment’s slow ef­forts to in­crease salaries.

Al­though the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Cul­ture, Science and Sports agreed to raise wages, there has not been a change in the wages of teach­ers and other em­ploy­ees in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor over the last four months, stressed T.Bayas­galan, the head of the Mon­go­lian Ed­u­ca­tion and Science Trade Unions.

“If our salaries aren’t raised be­fore the end of the year, the new year will be­gin with demon­stra­tions. It’s a lie that they don’t have money to in­crease wages. The re­cent case re­lated to small and medium-sized en­ter­prises showed that high-rank­ing of­fi­cials em­bez­zle bil­lions by tak­ing ad­van­tage of their po­si­tion,” he said.
