The teachers' strike in elementary and secondary schools continued for a fifth day today in the city of Zagreb. Teachers unions held an emergency news conference today to address the announcement on salary increases made by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković in his report to parliament.
“Not a single sentence of his resolves the problem which is the reason for a fifth day of strikes in elementary and secondary schools today. Education unions have just put forth clear demands for a correction and change to coefficients for complexity of work, because they have been diminished in the public service system. The coefficients for work complexity for someone with a bachelor's degree in public services, for teachers and those working with children are lagging behind the targeted coefficient by 6.11 percent. Increasing the base salary for all does not eliminate this lagging behind in the least bit. It maintains it in a certain relative form but in the absolute form the difference between these salaries increases,” said union representative Branimir Mihalinec.
Teachers were on strike today in the city of Zagreb and according to the latest information, unions have announced that tomorrow the strike will continue in Zadar, Karlovac, Vukovar-Srijem and Sisak-Moslavina counties.
