School teachers who are on strike after withdrawing from online education are preparing to hold a protest in Colombo Fort today. It is reported that representatives of 30 teacher-principal trade unions will participate in this.

The General Secretary of the Ceylon Teachers' Service Union Mahinda Jayasinghe says that it was decided to hold this protest as their demands were not resolved during the discussion held with the Minister of Education yesterday.

The protest is based on several demands, including the elimination of salary anomalies in the teaching profession.
