Berri, Hariri to try to resolve teachers strikeTeachers union leaders say they are waiting for the outcome of Thursday's meeting between MP Bahia Hariri and Speaker Nabih Berri to decide whether to call off a boycott of official exam grading. Nehme Mahfoud, head of the Association of Private School Teachers, told The Daily Star that Hariri conveyed a "positive message" during her meeting with the Union Coordination Committee and Education Minister Elias Bou Saab. Hariri reportedly reiterated the promise made by former Prime Minister Saad Hariri that the ranks and wages scale will be passed by Parliament soon. According to Salam, such a political advancement would lead to the reactivation of the Cabinet's full executive authority.
