News of the South HARARE – As the first term of 2019 begins today, uncertainty shrouds the entire education sector as teachers indicated last week that they will not report for duty on Tuesday (today) saying they are incapacitated to go to work.
In a statement the Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA) urged members in a message to inform their superiors of their whereabouts and indicate their inability to report for duty die to the incapacitation challenge.
“The union would like to urge all bonafide teachers not to fear threats from the employer. In 2019 no teacher should subsidize the employer.
“We demand adequate remuneration,” ZIMTA said.
Meanwhile government through acting Minister for Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare July Moyo said they have an offer ready for civil servants and it will be tabled at the Joint Negotiating council soon.
Minister Moyo said this after a meeting between Government and public service staff associations in Harare.
ZIMTA says government has not addressed any of their grievances despite numerous engagements they had in the past and they demanded payment of salaries in United States Dollars.
They justified their work boycott citing what they termed a “systematic erosion” of their members’ salaries, the increase in basic commodity prices, transport fares and the selling of essential products like medicine and healthcare facilities in USD.
Most Zimbabweans’ salaries are suffering the heavy burden caused by lack of foreign currency which has resulted in price hikes and demand by service providers for foreign currency when selling.0
