The Union of Tunisian University Teachers and Researchers (IJABA) has staged a sit-in in front of the Ministry of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to protest the freezing of wages of striking teachers. Najmeddine Jaouida, General Coordinator of the union, called on MEPs not to adopt a bill which would promote investment in the private education sector. He felt that this law would provide for a definitive break with the public university and lead the way to an anarchic privatization of universities.
