Teachers go on strike

78

The Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) has urged all public teachers to start boycotting classes from today arguing that government has failed to keep to its promise on addressing challenges affecting them.

TUM demanded that government should adjust salaries for teachers promoted in 2013 to grade TK (PT3) and grade TJ (PT2).

Following talks on the grievances addressed by TUM, government assured that it would meet to the demands addressed in the petition.

TUM then made a U-turn on the plans to have a national strike in the month of May,with the hope that government will keep its promise before 30 June as per agreed.

However, TUM President Chauluka Muwake disclosed that government has failed to meet the promise hence teachers are to boycott work from today.

Muwake added that they will not accept having gentleman’s talk on the matter,arguing that they have been fair in handling the matter.

However, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of education Science and Technology Lonely Magaleta,said government has addressed all the concerns from the Union.
