Estonian teachers in national strike push for pay
Wednesday 07 March 2012
Sixteen thousand teachers kicked off a three-day national strike today in support of their demand for a 20 per cent pay rise this year and 15 per cent in 2013 and 2014.
The Estonian Education Personnel Union (EEPU) says that some teachers earn a monthly wage of just €608 (£507), which is far behind the state’s average of €865 (£722).
The government says it will consider increasing teachers’ minimum wage to €700 (£584) in 2013.
The Nordic Teachers Council (NLS), an umbrella organisation representing 18 education unions in northern Europe, has voiced its support for the action, saying education is “the most powerful way to make a nation prosperous.
“The NLS wishes to express its solidarity, sympathy and support for the EEPU’s struggle for reasonable and competitive salaries and working conditions,” it said.
