Educators, who on Wednesday moved into the province to demand wage increases of 30% and also participated in a march with national associations in the Federal Capital, this week made another strike for 48 hours on Monday and Tuesday, and left clear that they are willing to go ahead with its fight plan.
Spokesmen of Teachers’ Federation (FEB) confirmed that unions received a formal invitation to take part in the key meeting scheduled for tomorrow, but then the provincial government reported the postponement of the meeting.
