Incapacitated Teachers Plead For Week-long Compassionate Leave

Incapacitated Teachers Plead For Week-long Compassionate Leave

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has asked its members to apply for a week-long compassionate leave for them to handle various personal issues brought by financial incapacitation.

In a statement, ARTUZ president Obert Masaraure said that Public Service regulations provide for compassionate leave for civil servants. Part of the statement read:

Section 41(g) of the Public Service Regulations provides for fully paid special leave of up to 12 days per year for any justifiable compassionate grounds.

Teacher incapacitation has birthed multiple challenges which ordinarily draw sympathy from any normal human being.

On Monday (today), teachers should file applications for compassionate leave citing the particular issues they are handling, school fees, rentals, hospital bills, and any other challenge which attracts sympathy from the supervisor. The leave should last up to May 20.

Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA) president Richard Gundane urged the Government to address teachersÔÇÖ incapacitation as a matter of urgency. He said:

We would like the government to urgently pay decent salaries in keeping with the poverty line and inflation.

Low salaries trigger incapacitation and reduce productivity. Educators must be motivated and adequately supported.

Teachers and other civil servants want the Government to restore their pre-October 2018 salary of US$540 per month.

To those complaining about teachers raising their remuneration problems, I would like to remind you of the Priest in NAZI Germany...
"When they came for the Jews, I kept quiet because I wasn't a Jew;
Then they came fo blacks, I kept quiet because I wasn't black;
When they came for the Poles, I kept quiet because I wasn't Polish;
Then they came for the communists, I kept quiet because I wasn't a communist.
When they came for me, there wasn't anybody to stand up for me"

An injury to One is an injury to all.
