In the newest episode of On the Barricades, we discuss advocating for labor rights with Judit Zeller, a member of Hungarian Civil LIberties Union. The topic is the teachers strike in Hungary and disobedience declared by some teachers because of repressive measures by governments.
All started in October 2021. After the joint action of the two largest labour unions in the domain, the courts become the arbiter for the resolution of the labour disputes, while the government heavily intervened against the teachers.
Why are courts a significant player in teachers’ protests? How is all that related to the essentiality of their work in corona virus times? “The government doesn’t want workers to protest in any way”, says Judit Zeller, discussing these and other issues.
