Nasser Al-Nawasra, the syndicate’s deputy head, told local media outlets that the teachers are staging an open sit-in inside what he described as “our ministry and our home”, adding that the purpose of the sit-in is clear — to reinstate those referred to early and provisional retirement, and those suspended from work. He said that teachers must return to their jobs with full financial rights and job titles.

“We are in an open sit-in to achieve these demands, and to give people their rights, as there is clear procrastination, despite all official statements in this regard,” he said.
