“To that aim, we hereby notify you that the government has been given a two-month opportunity to put the accords in effect. The two-month period is more akin to a cease-fire and does not signify the end of the strike. We really hope that the two-month window would be sufficient for action to be taken and the issue to be resolved, given the Honourable Minister of Education’s guarantee and our commitment to ensuring an end to the prolonged dispute.
