Govt, ZIMTA Meet Over Teachers' Incapacitation

Govt, ZIMTA Meet Over Teachers' Incapacitation

The Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association (ZIMTA) has urged its members to desist from locking pupils out of the classroom under the pretext of “incapacitation”, saying the Government has given assurances that it is working on addressing their grievances.

In a statement, the ZIMTA Chief Executive Officer, Sifiso Ndlovu, said Government representatives invited the union for talks this Tuesday following the declaration of incapacitation by teachers. Said Ndlovu:

The (ZIMTA) leadership did put matters straight and square. The government admitted that its cocktail of intervention was informed by ZIMTA’s position papers and had a strong focus on a hybrid salary package so as to address the dual pricing model of goods and services in the market.

Pressed to hint at the package, the representatives could only say, “Government is looking at a package that is good.”

He said teachers should expect a positive response from the Government after the union presented a strong case for better remuneration and improved working conditions.

Ndlovu added that ZIMTA officials reiterated their demand for a hybrid salary of US$671 for the lowest-paid worker. He said:

There is nobody benefiting from the current tiff. While we declared incapacitation members should note that this is not a lockout.

You people don't study the trendy that all civil servants enjoy hefty packages towards elections. Very soon they will forget their tears and get bussed into the same buss that spew them off soon after 2023 elections. The same scenario keep on recurring. Ini zvii zvangu

Unorwarawo iwe repitition yekutenderera panhu 1 ndoyaukuti heee hee kugona heee improvement, nxaa increament my Ass!!!

Zvinhu izvi it proves kuti Zanu pf Gvt is a failure by nature, Ungati zuro unoyu Teachers were earning at almost USD$500 but momuka movapa 175 then woti its an increment??? Seriously wakaenda kuchikoro here iwe??

Increament ( USD$500 ⏩ USD$700 )

This proves we are moving forward.

Decrement ( USD$500 ⏩ USD$170 )

This proves otherwise.

Pabate I'll be engaging you and your fellow members of the ZPF in basic grade 3 lessons because it seems kuti chikoro hachina kuendwa totally.

Ummmm asi pane basa those who are willing to fill in for me today, your assistance is greatly appreciated because mastudents acho pchiri nebasa vapfanha ava they have been totally brain washed.
