President reproves teachers' strike threats that hold students 'hostage'

CFK addresses Congress to inagurate the 2014 period of ordinary sessions.

Amid tense salary negotiations between the government and public teachers to decide this year’s wage hike, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner questioned strike threats by education unions. “The beginning of classes can not be so difficult due to salary talks,” she warned.

With collective bargaining talks still in a standstill, Ms. Kirchner urged teachers to accept the government’s decision to grant a salary plus for perfect attendance. “Is it fair for that who goes the whole year to make the same as that who goes on every possible leave?,” CFK complaint and confirmed the government is readying efforts to present unions a “better offer.”

“Sometimes one feels that is being held hostage because children have to attend clases, people have to work,” the head of state affirmed.
