The Union of All Teachers (STOP) will resume the strike for an indefinite period that has been running since December 9 and led to the closure of several schools during the last days of the first period.

The union delivered strike notices until the end of January, which also extended to non-teaching workers.

The strike was called in protest against the Government's proposals for the revision of the recruitment regime, currently under negotiation with the unions, and to demand responses from the tutelage to a set of other problems related to the teaching career and working conditions.

The National Federation of Teachers (Fenprof), one of the main trade union organizations in the sector, also decided to resume strikes for overwork, which had started on October 24.

The Independent Union of Teachers and Educators (SIPE) called a partial strike, also in protest against some proposals to change the recruitment regime. In this case, the stoppage is only for the first period of classes for each teacher, which means that teachers may be on strike at different times of the day.
