According to union chairman Andrius Navickas, the teachers' representatives have come to agreement with the ministry on an algorithm, which will help calculate teachers' wages more clearly and transparently.

The improvements are to be put in place next September. That said, the financing has not yet been agreed on, thus A. Navickas suggests that the strikes could be renewed next year.

According to minister Rokas Masiulis, finances for teachers' wages could be found by performing audits in the Ministry of Education and Science, as well as its subordinate institutions.

According to the minister, every school will have to decide itself, how to compensate students for classes missed due to the strikes.

The teachers' strike lasted a total of six weeks, with teachers staging a sit-in at the ministry for three weeks.

Minister of Education and Science Jurgita Petrauskienė lost her office during the strikes, however the prime minister assures that the dismissal was not due to the strikes.
