Teachers protested second day consecutive this Thursday in front of the Ministry of Education, in Caracas, demanding the full payment of the vacation bonus and the repeal of the Onapre instructions.
With slogans like “Let the minister come out!” and “Where are my reals?”, the protesters requested before the authorities that they cancel the full payment of the vacation bonus for active workers and the full payment of the recreational bonus for retirees, as well as the restitution of the premiums and the signing of the collective agreement.
Griselda Sánchez, president of the organization Formation of the Union Leadership, recently explained that they canceled their vacations with December salaries despite the fact that the collective agreement signed that it would correspond to the July salary.

He stated that teachers, laborers and administrative workers need a salary that allows them to live and that the vacations that correspond to them are not a gift.
The teachers assure that they will remain in the streets until the authorities comply with their demands, and affirm that they will not return to the classrooms if what corresponds to them is not paid.
