Primary, secondary school teachers on two-day strike

Primary and Secondary state school teachers will be on strike Tuesday and Wednesday after decisions taken by their unions.

The teachers are protesting reductions in their wages, education spending cuts and the merging of some schools.

The two teachers’ unions, DOE and OLME, said they would mount a campaign to inform the public about the impact that cuts in education are having.

The teachers are due to hold protest marches in central Athens today and tomorrow.

Their unions will meet again on March 4 to decide on any further action.
