Luanda: Angolan teachers on Friday ended a strike after reaching a deal with the government on pay and conditions, their union said.
The teachers had begun the walk-out, originally planned to last for three weeks, on Monday in what was seen as President Joao Lourenco´s first major labour challenge since he came to power in September.
"We have obtained an undertaking by the government that measures will be taken," the head of the teachers´ union Sinprof, Guilherme Silva, told AFP at the end of more than 10 hours of negotiations. Under the terms of the agreed deal, the teachers will be awarded a new status, including a new pay scale, Silva said.
