The Free Trade Union of Teachers and Researchers of Guinea (SELCG) announced on Sunday, January 13, the suspension of a three-month long strike following successful negotiations with the government. As such, classes resumed nationwide on Monday, January 14. However, according to the SELCG leader, the strike could resume by January 21, if no concrete measures are taken by the government by then.


Numerous teacher strikes and related violent student protests were staged after teachers launched a strike on October 3, 2018. Teachers were demanding, among other things, higher salaries, which the government had previously refused to deliver.


Individuals in Guinea are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
