Argentina teachers strikes

The teachers have asked for a 35 percent wage increase to compensate for the high inflation rate, which in 2016 reached more than 40 percent in the country.

The majority of the local governments proposed an 18 percent increase that would be paid in four parts, which is roughly US$16 per month in each quarter term, depending on the level of teaching experience.

In the province of Buenos Aires the government has opted to deduct from teachers’ salaries for every day of the strike and asked for sanctions against the participating unions.
