The leader of the teachers union Sławomir Broniarz came under pressure from liberal politicians who were supporting the strike to suspend it. Why? Because the poll numbers were showing that the strike was not popular and support for it was damaging the opposition and not the government. The ruling party’s lead over the liberal “European Coalition” has increased over the past two weeks.
So the plan seems to be to suspend the action with the threat of renewing at the start of the school year in September. That will be just a few weeks before a general election takes place.
The teaching union now has time to digest lessons form its handling of the current strike before hostilities maybe resumed. It is not the best kept secret that many questioned the way they had threatened to disrupt exams.
But the government now also has time to reflect and reconsider how it may approach the issue. Many don’t like the tactics the teachers used, but that does not mean that they are unsympathetic to teachers receiving a better deal in return for some reform in conditions of service that could make it easier for headmasters to incentivise better performance among their staff.
