Benin teachers end long-running strike
After months of strike and failed negotiations, teachers in Benin have now agreed to go back to work.
Labor unions and the government have finally reached a deal, which has caused the union to call on their members to resume classes.
During the long-running strike action, the government of President Boni Yayi had threatened to cut the pay of striking teachers for failing to end the strike.
But on the ground, the teachers are slowly resuming duty and the government has them to shorten their Easter vacation, in order to make up for the instructional time lost.
Some Beninese teachers have been speaking with WADR’s Euloge Aidasso.
