Teachers' union ready to call for Education Minister's resignation

Take note – story published 1 year ago

The Latvian Education and Science Workers Union continues to request the government to comply with all the requirements of the teachers' strike by June 30, and, if this is not done, will request the resignation of Education and Science Minister Anda Čakša, the trade union said in a statement on June 7.

The trade union invariably requests that the Cabinet amend all the necessary regulations regarding the financing procedures for preschool; general basic and secondary; professional orientation; interest; as well as special education educators.

If the legislation has not been amended by June 30, the LIZDA will request Čakša's resignation by July 3.

If none of the LIZDA's requirements are met, the union board will decide on further decisive action.

The Latvian Education and Science Workers' Trade Union (LIZDA) Council on Wednesday, June 7, listened to the calculations submitted by the Ministry of Education and Science (IZM), analyzing whether all the requirements for a teacher strike were met.

In particular, attention was paid to the funding needed for workload balancing, and the trade union remains concerned about whether the government's funding would be sufficient to meet all the strike requirements.
