Meeting between teachers, City Gov't over Classifying Boards postponed
An ongoing meeting between teachers’ unions and City government officials in which both parts are discussing the potential elimination of Classifying Boards for teachers will resume next Wednesday.
The meeting was between representatives from twelve teachers’ unions and City Education Minister Esteban Bullrich.
Representatives praised the PRO party’s decision to postpone a November 24th deadline to discuss the measure on the Legislature floor, and assured that “as long as the proposal is being discussed, we won’t go on strike.”
Héctor Cova, secretary general for the AMET teachers said he was in favour of discussing the matter “without any deadlines” and assured that during the fourth meeting “they reached several agreements to improve the system,” and asked Bullrich for additional time to continue to debate.
