Maldonado said that “the decision to go to strike at the beginning of the school year was not imposed by the announcement made by other four national associations, but wait that each trade union closed it negotiation yesterday and today to debate in our congress”.
“For now all agreed on March 6 to demonstrate at Ministry of Education, but each primary union define their own measures of force that could include strikes in the provinces,” she added.
