We will go on strike – teachers threaten

46

Teachers in Malawi have told the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology that they are to down tools due to unresolved grievances.

Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) general secretary Charles Kumchenga has said they are to mobilize teachers to put down tools if government fails to meet their demands come June 1 this year.

Kumchenga faulted government for not implementing the resolutions made on the teachers’ grievances which included unpaid arrears and failure to promote teachers.

“If government takes this issue for granted and thinks that we are to call off the strike after discussions then it is making a mistake, we are organized and we will not go back to work if government fails to meet our demands,” said Kumchenga.

Earlier, government through secretary to the treasury Ronald Mangani gave an assurance that it will pay the teachers their salaries.

This followed a strike that teachers had to demand the ministry to resolve their grievances.

  1. Every quarter teachers threaten to go on strike. Are the teachers genuine enough. Is a strike the only mode of solving the problems? Will they ever be taken serious? I hope they will mature.

  9. Pliz go on strike and the results will the same poor children will suffer. Why cant you learn from CHANCO. My free advice is let these poor pupils write their exams and tell the government that we will not open next session it will be better than that stupid thinking. For your my child is at these cheap so called Private school he not be affected but many will be affected. So all together lets think like new good Malawians osati ku ganiza ngati a Congress Party
