Primary school teachers go on strike on 5 October
Tomorrow, 5 October, many primary school teachers in the Netherlands will go on strike. Most schools will be closed.
The teachers want a similar salary as their colleagues at secondary schools who are educated to the same level.
Their wish is an extra €900m for salaries plus €500m to bring in more teaching staff and cut the pressure on teachers.
If tomorrow’s day of campaigning does not bring in more money, teachers will then take part in a two-day strike in November.
