Teachers to walk off the job on Wednesday

Teachers at Greece’s public schools are planning a nationwide strike on Wednesday, their union has announced following a meeting of its governing assembly.

According to the announcement by secondary school teachers’ union OLME, educators are reacting to government plans to introduce a new system evaluating their performance.

Wednesday’s 24-hour strike will come in the wake of two brief work stoppages on Monday and Tuesday. Teachers also held a protest rally outside the Education Ministry building on Monday.

They will hold a protest march outside the University of Athens at 10.30 a.m. on the day of the strike.
