The government came with a series of solutions to the problems in education, and the unions should understand that not all grievances can be satisfied in a single day, said president Klaus Iohannis today, in a first reaction related to the teachers’ strike that continues for a third day.
Klaus Iohannis: Solutions have been found to a series of the things asked by the unions and we had a discussion with the leadership of the coalition on this matter. These promises will be honored, no matter how the negotiations will continue. What the government promised that is possible the government will do. On the other hand, unions must see that a negotiation takes place in such a way that the two sides meet in the middle. It is difficult to imagine that all solicitations will be met until tomorrow, but the issue remains in the attention of the coalition and there is this firm promise to work on the law of unique payment, that will come with positive solutions./aionita
