Teachers launch a 15-day nationwide strike on January 7; avoid all related protests

TIMEFRAME expected from 1/8/2019, 12:00 AM until 1/22/2019, 11:59 PM (Africa/Bissau). COUNTRY/REGION Guinea-Bissau


The National Union of Teachers (Sinaprof), the National Democratic Union of Teachers (Sinderprof), and the Union for Higher Education launched a 15-day teacher strike on Monday, January 7. Associated protests are possible in the coming days and weeks. Further strikes are possible in the coming months should the negotiations with the government fail.


Teachers on strike since October 2018 are demanding the payment of salary arrears, a new salary in line with the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA) scheme, the adoption of formalized career paths, and better working conditions.


Individuals in Guinea-Bissau, particularly the capital Bissau, are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
