RAMALLAH (Ma'an) – The Palestinian Authority has responded positively to several demands made by the union of teachers, and as a result the union decided to suspend strike action, a spokesman for the group said.

Ahmad Suhweil told Ma'an Tuesday that he signed an agreement with PA prime minister Salam Fayyad, according to which the government agreed to approve seven of the demands the union submitted.

Suhweil confirmed that classes would operate regularly starting Wednesday.

As of the demands the government approved, Suhweil mentioned the resumption of a regular promotion system, recognition of teaching as a profession, and adherence to the career ladder among others.

Suhweil highlighted that the union's council held a meeting Tuesday evening and approved the agreement with Fayyad government.
