The job action follows a dispute with the Education Ministry over a failure to pay full salaries to all teachers. Special education will not be affected by the sanctions, and will be held as normal.
A union statement said "thousands of teachers have been caused undue harm due to Education Ministry failures to provide proper compensation as part of the 'New Horizon' reform."
