According to Sinprof, classes will resume in the normal way on Monday, April 16, and it calls on all teachers to play their role, as well as the parents, in order to encourage  students to go  back to attending classes.

 On the other hand, Sinprof urges the government to comply with the timeline of actions agreed by the parties, with emphasis on the approval until May 31, 2018, of the new Statute of the Teaching Career and its implementation.

Sinprof chairman Guilherme Silva, who was speaking to Journalists, said that the agreement comprises six actions, such as the implementation of the Statute of the Teaching Career, starting from the base salary gradually from September 2018.

Since 2013, Sinprof has called for the approval of the new Teaching Career Statute, updating of teachers' category, transition of teachers from the probation regime to the permanent (full time work) contract, among other complaints aimed at providing better salary and working conditions for teachers.
