Teachers' Unions Planning Ongoing Protests
The Democratic Union of Teachers (PDSZ) and the Union of Teachers (PSZ) are protesting against the government's threat to teachers who undertake civil disobedience for the right to strike, according to hrportal.hu.
"We are protesting not only because our colleagues are being threatened with disproportionate sanctions for breaching their obligations, but also because the government is demonstrating that instead of solving the problems, it would rather intimidate and punish, even at the cost of even more teachers falling out of the system, even though the provision of public education tasks stipulated in the constitution is not being implemented at the moment," the teacher unions' statement read.
PSZ and PDSZ are also announcing a joint action for October 5, when UNESCO celebrates World Teachers' Day.
The HR portal added that the two trade unions will submit petitions to the regional offices of the Commissioner for Basic Rights about the violations of rights experienced in public education.
