Teachers reject ’embarrassing’ proposal from Finance Ministry

The Teachers’ Union rejects a proposal presented today by Finance Minister  Avigdor Liberman as “embarrassing,” and claims that the offer was not part of ongoing negotiations aimed at averting a strike.

“The vague proposal that the Treasury presented to the public today is not familiar to us and was not presented to us as part of the negotiation meetings that took place all week,” the union says.

“It’s no surprise that the Finance Ministry refrained from raising this embarrassing proposal in negotiations with us. This is a proposal that further harms the terms of employment of the teaching staff,” the union adds, calling on Prime Minister Lapid to intervene.
