Teachers on strike across West Bank tomorrow

Nov. 23, 2013 5:55 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 24, 2013 3:00 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Teacher's Union in the West Bank has announced its decision to launch a limited strike on Sunday.

The limited strike means that teachers will be ending the school day after the third period and all administrative offices and ministries will close after 11 a.m.

Ahmad Sihweel, head of the Union told Ma'an, "We decided to hold a strike after the third period in schools and in the secretariat. We will meet tomorrow to discuss the schedule for next week."

He said that he had met with representatives from the Palestinian government regarding the teachers' demands.

The Teacher's Union has held limited strikes over the last few weeks in protest over the Ministry of Education's failure to fully implement an agreement reached last September.

The Union organized regular strikes in the first half of 2013 to protest unpaid salaries. It demanded a regular promotion system, recognition of teaching as a profession, and adherence to the career ladder among other issues.
