Teachers\' union threatened to take \'unprecedented action\'
The teachers\' union on Sunday threatened to take \"unprecedented action\" unless the Palestinian Authority responded to its\' demands.
Ahmad Suhweil, secretary-general of the union, told Ma\'an that the union has given the PA until Wednesday to implement their demands.
\"In the case that this doesn\'t happen the union will escalate its actions to include all options, including full strikes in schools and administrations,\" Suhweil said.
The teachers\' union organized regular strike action in the first half of 2013 to protest unpaid salaries.
Teachers had also demanded a regular promotion system, recognition of teaching as a profession, and adherence to the career ladder among others.
