There is no progress, the teachers continue their protest

According to Zoltán Maruzsa, the Secretary of State responsible for public education at the Ministry of the Interior, there is currently no government decision regarding the allocation of an amount from the central budget to raise wages and pay overtime that has not yet been paid, just as there is no question of reducing the workload – he announced Erzsébet Nagy, member of the national committee of the Democratic Union of Teachers, on Facebook after the trial. (The government points to the EU in relation to the salary increase for teachers, as it would be partly covered by EU support over several years.)

So, they did not say that they were ready for any kind of agreement for their single strike demand, it explained Index according to the trade union representative.

The strike will continue on September 1. “The teachers’ association is organizing civil disobedience, because it “does not want the children to teach during the strike, does not want to organize childcare and all kinds of things that are required by law and which are still called sufficient services,” said Erzsébet Nagy.

The trade unions have already indicated to the state secretary that the teachers enjoy their protection and support in the event that their wages are lost due to civil disobedience – even though they cannot be the organizers of the event.

Azonnali.hu previously reported that the European Commission would expect the Hungarian government to reform schools in small towns and to raise teachers’ salaries in order to reach an agreement on EU funds.

In the convergence program until 2028, the government made the commitment that by then the salaries of teachers will reach 80 percent of the average salary of a graduate, so a cumulative salary increase of 112 percent could take place until 2028, which would be calculated assuming that allowances would also be included in the calculation . And this is the teachers is a new development, since if the non-remunerated part of the salary, i.e. the basic salary, were to be increased, the 2028 goal would probably not be achieved. “The annual increase of 14 percent is significantly less than the 45 percent we demand. The first 14 percent will occur next year,” the teachers wrote on nedolgozingyen.hu.
