Croatia: Teacher unions to protest in Zagreb amid ongoing strike November 25 /update 2

Teachers are expected to protest in Zagreb on November 25 amid an ongoing strike; heightened security presence and associated disruptions expected



Several teachers' unions have called for a protest in Zagreb on Monday, November 25, to demand a wage increase and denounce working conditions. Participants plan to gather at 12:05 (local time) at the Ban Jelacic Square, though other small protests are expected in Zagreb and in other urban centers across Croatia. Teachers have been on strike since Tuesday, November 19, and the unions have said that teachers will continue the work stoppages indefinitely until their demands are met. 

Associated transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely near all protest sites.


Individuals in Croatia, and Zagreb especially, are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, allow additional time to reach their destinations, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
