Romanian Education Federation Spiru Haret On Warning Strike Monday

Representatives of the federation said the warning strike started at 7 a.m. and will last the entire day.

A number of 75,000 employees countrywide are affiliated to the federation, while 6,500 of them are in Bucharest.
 
Nearly 2,500 teachers in Dolj county, southern Romania, affiliated to “Spiru Haret”, went on warning strike Monday morning as well.
 
Bebe Cepoi, head of the Dolj branch of “Spiru Haret” unionist federation, said that 50% of nearly 5,000 teachers affiliated to the federation went to school, but refused to hold classes, while the rest of them went on strike.
 
The other three education federations - Alma Mater, FLSI and FEN - will go on a warning strike on November 10. 
 
All four union federations in the education system will go on a general strike as of November 18 for an indefinite period, displeased with the Government’s decision to prorogate the enforcement of the law hiking teachers’ wages by 50% until April 1, 2009.
