Thousands of students met on Monday in front of closed school doors for the second week in a row due to teachers’ ongoing strike. At the same time the teachers take action when the world famous energy fair in Stavanger-ONS opens with the participation of the queen and Prime Minister today.
– We will show the ministers, prime minister and perhaps the queen that we are on track and hope that it will put pressure on the situation, says Gunn Bo Tednes-Aaserød from the teacher’s union to Aftenbladet.no.
So far over 7,800 teachers joined in strike. Thousands of parents and students have been affected. Younger children are more often subject to strike. It means that parents must stay home and has consequences for work life.
Teachers demand better working hours and payment.
