Fenprof abandons meeting and accuses Minister of Education of anti-democratic attitude

This Monday Fenprof abandoned a meeting with the Ministry of Education before it ended and accused the guardianship of having an anti-democratic attitude for penalizing teachers who participated in the civil service strike in March.

The meeting had been going on for over two hours when Minister João Costa took the floor. Before finishing, the National Federation of Teachers (Fenprof), one of the nine to be heard, left the room.

Already on the street, and with the union leaders who protested throughout the meeting, the secretary general of Fenprof explained the reason, accusing the Ministry of Education of having an anti-democratic attitude by accepting that disciplinary proceedings be instituted against teachers who adhered to a civil service strike in March.

At issue is the strike called by the Common Front for March 17 and which, in schools, coincided with the strike for an indefinite period called by the Union of All Education Professionals (Stop), which was still ongoing. For the second, minimum services had been decreed, but not for the first.

According to Mário Nogueira, the Minister of Education confirmed that teachers who went on strike that day were being the target of unjustified absences and disciplinary proceedings.
