TALLINN, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A total of 17,234 teachers from 682 educational establishments took part in a national teachers’ strike in Estonia on March 7-9, Education Workers Union Chairman Sven Rondik said on Tuesday.
Thousands of medical, transport and road workers supported teachers, and the country witnessed the biggest protest action in its history, he said. “The biggest strike in Estonia since the moment of its restored independence shows that the civil society has taken shape,” Rondik said.
Teachers demand a 20% salary rise. At present their salaries near 84% of the country’s average salary, but they were higher than the average only a few years ago. The switch to the euro and inflation changed the situation.
“Estonian students have world-class knowledge but teachers’ salaries are one of the lowest in Europe. That is impermissible,” the Union said.
