In this capital, the teachers will concentrate in Plaza de la Dignidad and will march along the emblematic avenue of La Alameda.

The union demands reparations for the historical debt of the State with teachers, when during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990) their salaries were reduced, which also affected their pensions.

Other demands are a plan to confront school violence, the payment of delayed retirement bonuses, changes in the sector's financing model, an end to the work burden and the revision of the teaching day.
