The League of High School Teachers struck back at Education Minister Elias Bou Saab Tuesday by continuing with their strike a day after the ministry warned that strikes were illegal.Earlier this month, the Union Coordination Committee called for a strike on Oct. 20, Oct. 26 and Nov. 4 as a means to pressure Parliament to pass a wage hike.But the strike, which was scheduled for Oct. 20, was called off by the UCC and replaced with a protest in front of the Court of Accounts. Although it is part of UCC, the league did not abide by its decision to call of today's strike and carried on with the move.In a news conference Monday, Bou Saab lauded the UCC for calling off the scheduled strike, but warned the league to cease efforts to carry on with it.
