  • [01] Teachers still at loggerheads with gov't

    ANA-MNA -- An escalating row between the government and secondary educators has been fueled by the government's decision to issue a civil mobilisation order, forcing teachers to work through strikes planned during the nationwide university entrance examinations (Panhellenic Exams).

    OLME, the federation of secondary school teachers, is planning to hold a demonstration on Monday against the government's decision. It has also called on major labour unions GSEE and ADEDY to call a general strike on May 17.

    On Saturday, OLME board members met to examine ways to prevent the orders being served to them, as the government plans to do on Monday morning.

    Following the signing of the decision by Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Saturday evening, Education minister Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos said that "the Prime Minister and the government have ended the agony of thousands of students."

    The minister added that the decision for civil mobilization of teachers was "politically correct and constitutionally necessary". The civil mobilisation order reads that there is "an imperative need" to prevent the "threatened negative effects" of the planned 24-hour strike or any other strike called during the exam period."Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:Tahoma;color:#0F1419;mso-ansi-language:

Their action is primarily staged against the government's decision to increase teachers' working hours by two hours a week.
