“Fighting for the school year”: Shasha Beaton’s demand from Lieberman

11 days to the start of the school year in the schools and kindergartens, and the opening of the schools is in question. The teachers union is threatening to announce a strike following the difficulties in negotiations with the Ministry of Finance, which on the other hand is considering applying to the Labor Court to issue injunctions against the measure. Minister of Finance Avigdor Lieberman This evening (Saturday) on “News 12” he commented on the crisis in the education system and said: “We have offered a package of more than 400 million shekels. You have to understand that when you sign with the teachers union this is only the beginning, after which will come the organization of super elementary teachers, counselors, doctors and interns.”

“The authority to negotiate the labor agreement belongs exclusively to the Ministry of Finance,” claimed Lieberman. “I suggest to all politicians two months before elections not to get involved. Whoever is in charge is in charge of wages. They want to bring about a strike, they know the government will be under pressure, they will give up everything.
I don’t know what their considerations are. You have to understand, we gave far-reaching things, a beginning teacher will start the first month with NIS 9,000, a school principal will receive NIS 20,000.”

Finally, he clarified that “what we demand is synchronization of holidays between the education system and the economy, rewards for excellence, a personal contract and much more authority for school principals to be able to hire teachers and fire teachers. It shouldn’t take two months.”

Meanwhile, the Minister of Education was interviewed Ifat Shasha Biton in “News 13” and she also addressed the issue. “It is impossible to continue with another Band-Aid and another Band-Aid on the education system,” said the minister.

When she was asked to comment on Finance Minister Lieberman saying that she was “shooting the APC” because she was not asking for restraining orders, Shasha Biton said that “it is impossible for the children to be in uncertainty. The first interest is to bring about a good trade agreement that can give perspective to the system.”

According to her, “The fight is not really about the teachers, it is about the system, about the interest of the children to have good and satisfied teachers. We in the Ministry of Education have brought an outline that bridges the gaps between the teachers and the Treasury, that addresses the issue of beginning teachers, refers to excellence and personal contracts for content experts, and of course to the promotion of teachers that are in the system”.

In conclusion, she turned to the Minister of Finance and said, “I am asking Minister Lieberman to convene everyone and give unequivocal instructions to reach an agreement this week. I am fighting for the coming school year. The story is not only with the beginning of the year, but whether we will have teachers and kindergarteners. I demand from the Treasury to sit down from tomorrow morning To give the children a perspective.”
