In a statement, the National Federation of Unions of Workers in Public and Social Functions (FNSTFPS) explains that the suspension of the strike does not mean a retreat in workers' claims. Non-teaching staff want a solution for what they term “old problems” in the sector that have become more urgent in the current context of the pandemic of the covid- 19, such as the reinforcement of staff with over 6,000 non-teaching staff and an end to the municipalisation process.
