    “If even one worker loses his job, we will be against them”, he stressed. in January 2023, a decision was made to abolish the service market, which – as he said – “finds us in agreement and streamlines employment in the programs of the Ministry of Education”.

    “The practice of purchasing services, as it is still applied, concerns hundreds of graduates working in education, who should not be victimized under any circumstances,” he noted, while calling for consultation with the trade unions of those affected and for no one to be left without a job. .

    AKEL Member of Parliament, Christos Christofidis, said that ways must be found to ensure the labor rights of those employed by the Ministry of Education. “There are solutions,” he said, adding that there cannot be two types of employees within the school.

    “We expected the KIEs to evolve into All-Day Schools”, noted Mr. Taliadoros, adding that there is no political will to create the All-Day School. “The implementation of the pre-election commitments of the President of the Republic does not seem to be starting,” he continued.
