The Ministry of Human Resources (Emmi) has told unions that a strike planned by teachers on Monday would be illegal as the Jan. 28 court ruling on the matter was not final.
It is only lawful to hold a strike in Hungary in possession of a final court ruling on the matter.
The government called the unions to postpone Monday’s mass strike and to act within the law.
The ministry said in a statement on Saturday that children and parents had suffered enough already due to the burdens of the coronavirus pandemic. Students must attend school on Monday since the strike is illegal, it added.
