Mahmoud Hamdan, head of the UNRWA schools – teachers’ sector in Gaza, said that the sit-in will be held on Monday for one hour in protest against the UNRWA’s decisions of imposing a mandatory vacation without salary on its employees.

Hamdan said school students in the morning term will leave their schools at 10:30 am whereas teachers will stay at work. The evening term students will leave at 3:30 pm and teachers will remain at schools as well.

As for government schools, the teachers’ syndicate in Gaza announced that a partial strike will be launched on Monday in Gaza’s government schools in protest against the repudiation of obligations by the Palestinian unity government toward the civil workers in Gaza.

Head of the syndicate, Khaled al-Mezyen said the strike will start after the third lesson in both morning and evening times at all schools.

A press conference will be held in order to demand teachers’ rights in light of the failure of the government to pay workers their salaries and transportation allowance in addition to being unable to allocate running budget for the ministry, he said.(T/P008/R03)
