Teachers’ Union PSZ Turns to Constitutional Court over Vocational Training Law

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.02.13.

Hungarian teacher union PSZ is turning to the Constitutional Court over the new law on vocational training, saying it hurts the interests of the sector’s workers.

The union wants the court to retroactively annul provisions in the law that strips vocational education workers of their public employee status and makes them subject to the labour code with no possibility for legal remedy available for them, PSZ leader Zsuzsa Szabó told a press conference.

PSZ deputy leader Gábor Gosztonyi noted that the union had submitted a constitutional complaint to the court last month asking for the retroactive annulment of all the law’s provisions.

Tamás Totyik, another deputy leader, said PSZ also had “serious concerns” about the new national curriculum (NAT).
