Bassam Naim, a spokesman for the teachers' union, told Ma'an News Agency teachers will be in school but will not hold class. He said the job action will start with a sit-in Tuesday afternoon outside the offices of the Palestinian Legislative Council in Ramallah and continue Wednesday morning.
Public employees in the West Bank have received only partial paychecks in recent months and occasionally have not been paid at all. Naim said recent statements by Palestinian Authority officials have shown they have no respect for teachers.
