Libya's General Union of Teachers says teaching across the country from primary to high schools, has been suspended until its demands are met by the House of Representatives.
The President of the Union Abdulnabi Saleh called on the House to adopt the teachers' law based on increasing salaries for teachers and providing them and their families with health insurance, as well as introducing educational training programs for teachers.
Libya is politically divided between an eastern government and a western one, thus having two ministries of education.
