Croatian teachers are to begin a nationwide strike on Thursday, October 10, to demand a wage increase. Teachers are asking for a six percent salary raise because they claim to be significantly underpaid compared to other public sector jobs. Representatives recently rejected a government offer of a two percent pay increase.
Associated protests are possible in urban centers across Croatia, though particularly in Zagreb. Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely near any protest.
Individuals in Croatia, and Zagreb especially, are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, allow additional time to reach their destinations, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
