Teachers stage warning strike
Teachers from around 50 schools in Lithuania are taking part in a two-hour warning strike on Friday.
Representatives of the Lithuanian Education Employees Trade Union, holding the strike, says around 1,000 teachers are taking part, including teachers from secondary schools, kindergarten and art schools. All in all, there are around 53,000 teachers in Lithuania.
The trade union demands raising pay for educational employees, making children's groups at kindergartens and schools smaller and also postponing changes in the pay system for teachers.
