70,000 Chilean teachers in second week continue to strike for better education
Chilean teachers’ strike has entered the second week Monday due to lack of government responses to their demands for better working conditions and structural changes.
Around 70,000 members of the Chilean Teachers' Association are striking for better working conditions, demanding the Ministry of Education to ensure adequate attention to public education and take measures to stop its deterioration.
The indefinite strike will have another demonstration Tuesday where teachers from all over the country will participate. It will culminate in front of the National Congress in Valparaiso.
The union said unemployment continues has increased and the strike will not be lifted until there is a satisfactory response from the government, which will be evaluated by the association. ■
