Governor: To Accept Teachers’ Demands is Irresponsible

By: David Real | Real Acapulco News - 08 June, 2011

(Chilpancingo, JG 8 June) Governor Ángel Aguirre Rivero stated yesterday that it would be irresponsible to agree to all the demands of the teachers’ union, which created a blockade of the main highway and the city streets in the state capital on Monday.

The governor said that he has sat down at tables to work and negotiate with the teachers’ union four times, and the leadership is uncompromising, unyielding, and militant. As a condition of considering their demands, he wants the teachers to participate in his literacy campaign. “They have assured me that they will,” he said. Nevertheless, the governor said that he cannot responsibly accept economic demands when there are no resources in the state budget to meet them.
