Lázár Rules Out Wage Hike For Teachers
The government has no means to hike teachers’ wages by 15-20% at the moment, government office chief János Lázár said. There is no way of doing so, even if protesters “use children ... to blackmail the government,” he told a weekly government press briefing.

He warned trade unions against engaging in such demeaning action. Instead he called on teachers’ representatives to attend official talks with the government, which he said was open to negotiations.

He said access to free textbooks would remain in place but there would be no concessions made to the “textbook lobby” even “if it hides behind teachers”.
