There will be a teachers’ strike on December 12th. The following groups will be asked to stay at home:

Group 6B - Isabel

There will also be no Dutch lessons and no gym lessons on that day.

The doors will open at 08:45 for the groups that are in school.

 

Purpose of the strike
Primary school teachers feel they are overworked and want to reduce their workloads by hiring more teachers. They also want salaries comparable to secondary school teachers. In the Netherlands, salaries for secondary teachers are considerably higher, with the starting salary 7 percent higher and the maximum salary 21 percent higher.
