Estonia Considering Increase in Teacher Pay From 2013, BNS Says

March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Estonia’s government is considering increasing the minimum wage for teachers to 700 euros ($920) a month starting 2013, Baltic News Service reported, citing Education and Science Minister Jaak Aaviksoo.

The ministry has no funds to raise salaries this year, BNS cited Aaviksoo as telling a news conference today in the capital, Tallinn.

The Education Personnel Union will start a nationwide strike tomorrow, demanding a 20 percent increase in teachers’ wages this year and 15 percent each in 2013 and 2014. That would mean the minimum salary for junior teachers would rise to 730 euros by next year from 608 euros now, according to its website.
