The so-called "circular strike" at Croatian schools, which involves day-long strikes at different countries of the country every day, will last until at least Friday, November 1, unionist Branimir Mihalinec said on Monday without revealing what the unions plan to do after that date.

The unions are sticking to their demand for the government to increase the so-called "job complexity index" to 1.406. In spite of the 6.12 percent base pay rise for all public servants announced by Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic last week, school unions say that workers in education would still lag behind other public servants unless the index - used to calculate salaries for every employee in education - is increased.

On Monday, the strike entered its 12th day. On Sunday, the government said that they would hire "international consultants" to compile a thorough analysis of job complexity indices in public service, so that "all workers are fairly evaluated."

Earlier on Monday, a legally stipulated conciliation attempt between the government and the main higher education union fell through, which led universities to announce a one-day strike on Thursday. They added that they would strike at least one day every week until their demands are met.
