Teachers go on a one-hour strike on February 7, reacting to the government's decisions on the pandemic, sending the message that they want immediate solutions.

In his statements  The Secretary General of POED, Haris Charalambous, noted that the date decided for the work stoppage is not accidental, as it gives time to the government to provide solutions to problems related to replacements, but also to the absence of ventilation systems in the classrooms. In addition, the WTO considers that the test to stay measure will create further problems.

"We want to send the message that we want solutions. "We are worried, we are concerned and we want the problems to be solved", noted Mr. Charalambous.

In the meantime, among the measures decided by the POED is a protest demonstration during non-working hours.

A relevant announcement is expected today.
