Strike continues

The Union for Education, Science, and Culture of Kosovo (SBASHK) said in a statement on Sunday that it will continue the strike in education.

According to the union, the leaders of the municipal strike councils and universities and the unions of civil servants expected that over the weekend the government would engage and meet with the strikers in an effort to find an acceptable solution, but they were disappointed by Prime Minister Kurti’s remarks on Sunday.

“An impression is created that instead of engaging in meetings and finding an agreement, the Prime Minister and the government seem to want the strike to continue,” the statement notes. “The strike will continue in the next days due to the lack of readiness by the Prime Minister and the government to engage in dialogue and their ignoring of the legitimate demands of the strikers.”
