Chilean teachers and academic employees have called off an indefinite strike after union members voted to return to work. Government has not yet answered to teachers' demands, nor have they opened negotiations. Teachers did state, however, that they will continue noting their demands to government.
Protests remain possible, however, as 33 percent of union members voted to continue the strike, though in significantly smaller numbers.
Teachers in Chile begun their indefinite strike on Monday, June 3, which produced significant disruptions across the country. Their demands include bonuses being paid, increased security for educators, end double evaluations, and an increase in working hours.
Individuals in Chile are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
