Teachers reject Govt offer...plan to go ahead with strike

As the new school term begins tomorrow, the teachers salary increase dispute remains unresolved - regardless of reports that government had since offered a package to improve teachers’ salaries and working conditions.


Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima is on record saying government was happy with the progress in negotiations made so far, in addressing teachers concerns - to avert their decision to strike.


However, Progressive Teachers Association of Zimbabwe president Mr Takavarasha Zhou said the decision by government had not been formally communicated with them hence they can not confirm reports of having reached an agreement with government.


Mr Takavarasha further maintained that as long as teachers concerns were not addressed directly to their satisfaction, teachers will continue with the planned industrial action as schools open tomorrow.


Meanwhile, several parents who spoke to Capitalk FM News have implored government to engage the teaching fraternity over the scheduled strike. They called on both government and teachers to prioritise dialogue and reach a consensus, before disadvantaging the innocent students.
