Head of the National Youth and Student Council Nir Katararo on Saturday called on secondary school teachers and the treasury to reach a compromise and prevent the damage likely to be caused by the planned teachers strike. The Secondary School Teachers Organization - which is seeking a more favorable wage scheme and a larger number of early retirement packages - is expected to make a final decision Sunday on whether to hold a strike. "It is clear that if there is a strike, in the end there will be a deal - so instead of causing unnecessary harm and testing our absorbability, reach a compromise immediately!" Katararo wrote in a press release.
