Strike – teachers
Most schools in Slovenia were closed on 16th of February 2018 as some 40,000 teachers held a one-day strike. About 20,000 teachers from all over Slovenia flooded the city center of Ljubljana blowing whistles and holding banners such as: “I cannot live only from love for my profession,” and “We educated you, where did we go wrong?” . The main demand was that the average teacher’s wage be increased by about 10 percent. The strike was organized by teachers’ trade unions SVIZ.
