“Zoltán Maruzsa reported that, at the moment, there is no government decision regarding reassignment from own funds, i.e. from the central budget, to raising wages in public education, paying unpaid overtime, and reducing the workload. So, not a single strike demand of ours was told that any kind of agreement would be ready”

is said In PDSZ’s Tuesday evening videowhich was hired directly after the last strike negotiations with Zoltán Maruzsa before the start of the school year.

The PDSZ, the PSZ, the Tanítanék movement and other interest protection organizations demand the reinstatement of teachers’ right to strike, an increase in salaries and a reduction in workload, but – as Erzsébet Nagy, a member of the national committee of the PDSZ, A telex formulated – “the problem is that the government has no intention of raising wages. For this reason, the strike will start in several schools from September 1, but there will be those who choose civil disobedience even now.

In the video of the PDSZ, Erzsébet Nagy said that they stopped the strike process in the spring because the parliamentary elections came, but “now we will continue this strike. We announced that the work stoppages would be reorganized from the first.”. It is also revealed in the video that many teachers have indicated that they do not wish to participate in the work stoppage, which the government allows only under such strict conditions that they essentially make the entire strike process impossible.

At the beginning of the year, the government amended the right to strike for teachers, the amendment to the law stated, for example, that even during the strike, teachers must manage the supervision of children between 7 am and 5 pm. Catering must also be provided in the usual place, manner and time; the matriculation classes must take every hour of the compulsory matriculation subjects even during a work stoppage, everyone else half the hours of each subject. Children with SEN (special educational needs) or children struggling with integration, learning, or behavioral difficulties must also have all activities, development, and catch-up activities.

According to the PDSZ, those teachers who refuse the strike, which is restricted in this way, are organizing civil disobedience.

According to the Telex article, the Tanítanék movement has already indicated that if they do not receive a substantial offer from the government by September 2, civil disobedience actions may occur again in schools from the second week of the school year. The Students for Teachers group is organizing a school year opening demonstration on Friday in front of the capital’s Basilica in order to stand up for teachers.

“The PDSZ asked Zoltán Maruzsa whether the statement of the Minister of the Interior, referred to by a school district leader, was true, that as a result of civil disobedience, the institutions would be reorganized during the year, they would be closed, or colleagues involved in civil disobedience would be sent away. Maruzsa replied to the trade union that Minister of the Interior Sándor Pintér did not issue such an instruction or opinion”
