The education workers demand salary increases to compensate for the accelerated loss of purchasing power and reject budget cuts affecting public goods and services.

The strike also opposes the elimination of the National Teacher Incentive Fund (FONID) and the Salary Compensation Fund.

On Feb. 22, the education workers held an assembly in which they ratified the need to mobilize to prevent the destruction of public education.

CTERA, which is one of the largest trade unions in Argentina, stated that the national strike will be accompanied by demonstrations across the country.

From the early hours of Monday, teachers began to gather in front of the Pizzurno Palace, the headquarters of the Education Ministry, in Buenos Aires.

Among the resolutions adopted at the CTERA assembly are demanding the formation of the national bargaining table and convening a meeting of secretaries to continue the struggle plan if no responses are obtained by Wednesday 28th.

The education workers also decided to condemn political persecution and the repression protocol set by Security Minister Patricia Bullrich and to strengthen unity among teachers, workers, and citizens to build a major national strike.
