Music Teachers Strike

Published October 22, 2014

Music teachers are striking, since today, Wednesday. Negotiations A between the Association of Music School Teachers (FT) with the Association of Local Authorities, have reportedly failed, leading to 93% of FT’s 500 members voting in favor of strike-action.

Interviewed by RÚV, Sigrún Grendal, FT Chair, said that the teachers’ clear, common goal was terms and conditions comparable to those of teachers in other institutes within the school system. She said that music teachers are currently far away from that goal.

According to the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, there are 89 active music schools in Iceland.
