After two months retired teachers got paid their monthly payment, a state official said.

State Secretary of Education Gerardo Solís said the state spent 28.6 million pesos or close to $1.4 million to 7,119 teachers — an average of $196.

The payment corresponds to December’s pension.

On Friday, Secretary General of the Local 2 of the National Education Teachers Union Juan Enrique Villanueva said the teacher strike that first started out on Oct. 28 was expected to stay until the payment was made.
