Minister and unionists fail to agree on future of 212 teachers

The union representing secondary school teachers in Greece (OLME) failed to reach an agreement on Friday with Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis over the future of 212 teachers who entered the public sector mobility scheme on reduced wages eight months ago but are now due to be sacked.

OLME representatives held talks with Mitsotakis yesterday but emerged last night to tell a large crowd which had been protesting outside the ministry that they had not secured a commitment for the teachers to be hired.

OLME said that it would continue its protests.
