National education strike on 22 May
Update 23 May: Yesterday’s strike looked in doubt at one point with several regional representatives withdrawing support for the action. In the event, the stoppage went ahead, but unions admit that support was limited, with around just 10% or so of teachers coming out on strike. Many pupils were understandably kept at home but for those who attended as normal, disruption was hardly noticeable.
Original post 8 May: A national education strike has been called for 22 May. The stoppage will affect all levels of education from infant schools to Universities, and Unions say there is complete support for it. Canarian Government vice president and Education Minister, José Miguel Pérez, has also said he supports it “absolutely”. The strike is in protest at Government cuts in education.
