Professors in the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Ioannina, western Greece, submitted their resignations en masse to the rector in order to show support to students. Reason for the mass resignations is that faculty graduates are not being granted professional rights.
The decision was taken at the General Assembly of the Department of the Faculty of Agriculture, which is based in Arta.
The students have been mobilizing for days, demanding the legislative recognition of their professional rights.
Although a relevant amendment has been submitted to Parliament, the professors have described it as “hasty, sloppy and does not solve the problem.”
