Some Slovak university lecturers to launch strike as of Monday

BRATISLAVA, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- Some university lecturers will interrupt their work on February 15 and go on a full-fledged strike, local news agency TASR reported Friday.

They are taking over the baton from the Slovak Teachers Initiative (ISU), which is interrupting its strike as of Monday.

So far, lecturers from 14 universities have announced that they are joining the strike, among them staff from the University of Economics in Bratislava, Presov University, Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra and Comenius University in Bratislava.

"This figure means that if at least one lecturer from a university is registered as being on strike as of Monday, the university will be viewed as being involved in the strike," confirmed Juraj Halas from the University Lecturers Initiative (IVU), which is organizing the action.

IVU has similar demands as ISU. Dissatisfied staff are asking for salary increases for all teaching and other professional staff in regional education by 140 euros (157.51 U.S. dollars) per month as of this year and by 90 euros per month as of the beginning of 2017.

Other demands include increasing the budgets of the ministries of education and interior by hundreds of millions of euros in order to tackle differences in equipment at individual institutions.
