Teachers in Iran have been taking part in a two-day strike on 14th and 15th October. This is part of the dispute over budget cuts and teachers’ pay with the Ministry of Education. The Coordinating Council of Teachers Syndicates in Iran (CCTSI) had called on teachers to hold sit-ins at their schools and to cancel planned lessons on these two days.
At the same time, truck drivers in the country are also participating in a strike. The truck driver strikes are now in their third week.
