Greek teacher's umbrella union OLME, has announced rolling five-day strikes, after an extremely long session of their assembly. Of the 85 local representations, 72 voted in favor, of the strikes. The union reps stated that they would re-examine their position after every five day strike.
Meanwhile OLME has issued a call, through the media for parents to support their "struggle for public schools that will cater for all students and all teachers."
Certain tertiary and vocational education institutions, across the country have also decided to go on strike, mostly for reasons of employee side transfers in the state sector .
Recently, Education Minister Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos refuted all rumors that the government would resort to a "mobilization" of teachers.
