“All processes that are under the jurisdiction of the State Exam Center (State Matura, state testing, training and exam for directors, trainee exams, international TIMS testing, etc.) will be stopped until the approval of the Ministry of Finance is obtained. All 29 employees are members of the union and the state of strike, which would last longer than a week, would mean the impossibility of conducting the state graduation,” reads the SODIC-SFDM’s press release.
