Nationwide Teachers’ Strike – 2023

Must read

The Combination of the ‘Post Primary Teachers’ Association’ and the ‘New Zealand Educational Institute, Te Riu Roa’ marched across the nation on the 16th March 2023, demanding measures to be implemented from the New Zealand government for better living conditions. This day has been taken into the history now. But it was such a remarkable day as all the schools and kindergarten in New Zealand were closed due to this industrial action where 50,000 teachers and principals had collectively participated.

According to the voice of the teachers, the aim of the strike was not only to benefit them, but also to ask for a better future for tamariki in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

When the first school semester was about to finish, the secondary school teachers voted for another day off and planned for another strike on the 29th of March 2023.

Also, members of the Post Primary Teachers’ association had already put their thoughts forward for not attending the next meeting outside the school hours which seemed they were taking this seriously.

The biggest hit of this year was that teachers have been in action twice in a row within the first quarter of the year. This is something deserving close attention from the New Zealand government.
