Teachers to launch strike action this week, union says

Jan. 26, 2013 7:30 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 28, 2013 2:34 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Teachers in the West Bank will go on strike for three days this week, the teachers union announced Saturday.

Ahmed Anis, secretary general of the teachers union, told Ma'an that there will be no classes in West Bank schools on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, as teachers protest against irregular salary payments by the Palestinian Authority.

Anis called on the PA to respond to teachers' demands before Feb. 5, which was the deadline set by the union to reach an agreement over salaries.

If no agreement is made before the due date, the union will escalate strike action to unprecedented levels, he said, adding that classes will be resumed on Wednesday until Feb. 5.
