The teachers’ federations are calling for a joint mobilization EVERYONE and IOC on Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 14:00 with a convenient working stop from 13:15 to 17:00.

The gatherings, except for Athens which will take place at YPAITHA on Thursday at 2 pm, will be held at the local Education Directorates throughout the country.

As OLME reports: “The situation with teacher vacancies is borderline! The political leadership of the Ministry of Education since the summer and especially in the last few days, has been trying to create a false image regarding the staffing of the schools. We remind you that last year over 47,000 substitutes worked and this year 28,353 were hired in the first phase. In other words, the school year has already started with approximately 20,000 vacancies since the appointments made barely cover the retirements!
At this moment the Ministry of Education is trying to “cut” the recruitment of substitutes by “cutting” children’s education!
That’s enough! You cannot play with the children and the teachers who have been supporting the operation of the schools for so many years.”

For its part, the IOC points out: “The Board of Directors of D.O.E. aware of the borderline situation that has been created in the schools with the thousands of gaps in all branches, invites his/her colleagues to participate in the mobilization at Y.PAI.TH.A. on Thursday, 28/9/2023 at 14:00 as well as the local Directorates of Education throughout the country.

Here and now, covering all the real gaps. We decisively and vigorously defend the rights of students and teachers”.
