Chilean Teachers Vote to Continue Unlimited Strike

SANTIAGO – The Chilean teachers guild voted Friday to continue the unlimited strike, now in its 12th day, in rejection of a teaching career bill that was suspended by the legislature’s Education Commission until an agreement is reached with the educators.

Teachers also analyzed this Friday the possibility of accepting the proposal of the legislative commission, which suggests forming a “tripartite” roundtable to establish a dialogue among lawmakers, the administration and teachers, while postponing the visits of experts and also suspending the general vote scheduled for the first week in July.

According to the teachers guild, in the coming days it will make its own proposal that will include conditions for ending the strike that began June 1.

“We always respect the decisions of the organizations of society, but this we regret because those who are harmed most are our boys and girls who are missing classes,” Education Minister Nicolas Eyzaguirre said at La Moneda Palace, the seat of Chile’s executive branch.

The education minister also made a call “to resume the dialogue” and said that “with all the effort the government has made to bring us closer together, to which have been added the efforts of lawmakers, we still have been unable to find common ground.”

Teachers reject the requirement to take a learning test in order to be certified for a teaching career, and complain that salaries continue to be very low.
