Teachers X Publica (DxP) have called for an immediate teachers’ strike starting with effect on September 15, 2020.
THE purpose of the strike is to request an increase in safety measures in educational environments across Andalucia.
In correspondence received by parents from the Junta de Andalucia on Friday September 11, 2020, the strike is considered necessary to ensure the safety of both staff and students.

The strike is being called to take effect for all non-university public education centres in the Junta de Andalucia and is being called to occur between September 15, 2020, at midnight until October 16, 2020 at midnight.
