Union leader Frantisek Dobsik has indicated that the teachers’ unions will wait and see how the candidate for the post of education minister, Ondrej Liska of the Green Party, will react to a planned teachers’ strike on Tuesday before weighing additional options. The union leader said as much during a televised debate programme on Sunday. Mr Dobsik admitted that he saw matters differently after meeting with Mr Liska and the head of the Green Party - and acting Education Minister - Martin Bursik on Saturday. In their meeting Mr Bursik said that reserve funds in the education sector would be sought and expressed the view that the new minister would be able to secure additional EU finances. Tuesday’s protest by the teachers’ unions is aiming to draw attention to continuing problems in the education sector.
