After the Ministry of Finance signed an agreement with the teachers’ union, the high schools will also return to school tomorrow. This is after an agreement was signed with the teachers’ organization this evening (Wednesday), thus lifting the sanctions in the upper divisions. The agreement comes after negotiations were conducted between the parties on the conditions of the teachers and other issues with the Ministry of Finance. As part of the negotiations, Erez reached an agreement with the Minister of Education, Ifat Shasha Bitonon the implementation of the reform in the military occupations.

Earlier, the chairman of the teachers’ organization, Ran Erez, spoke with Anat Davidov 103FM and sent a harsh message to the Ministry of Finance: “This is about an addition of divorces, it could be that for teachers preparing for matriculation exams, something like half an hour a week, something that could have an annual cost of 5,000 Shekels maybe. The Ministry of Finance is willing to pay the extra work required of a 12th grade teacher, but he has to sign a collective agreement. I intend to shut down school until the collective agreement we owe is signed. If it is signed today, we will not strike.”
