No Pay For Absent Teachers - Govt

No Pay For Absent Teachers - Govt

The Government has warned teachers who are not reporting for duty citing “incapacitation” that the “no work, no pay” principle will be invoked against them.

Schools opened for the first term on 7 February 2022 amid reports that the majority of school heads and teachers in urban areas did not report for work.

Director of communications in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Taungana Ndoro, said it is the normal procedure “the world over” that sanctions are imposed on employees who fail to report for work. Said Ndoro:

The normal procedure is that if there is someone who does not report for duty, the normal procedure the world over is that there are remedial actions that are taken by an organisation and one of the measures is not to pay the absent teachers as they might not be part of the ministry anymore.

Ndoro said 60 per cent of teachers nationwide reported for duty on Monday while some educators were still on their way to their workplaces.

Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA) president Richard Gundane teachers may not have travelled to their workstations because they don’t have money for bus fare. He said:

Those who do not have boarding transport, or who live far away from their workstation might not have reported for duty because they have genuine concerns that they do not have money to do that.

But what we have observed is that there are educators who genuinely reside in the schools such as boarding schools and rural schools and a few who reside in houses that are near urban schools.

Those ones you will find that they are there.

Teachers’ unions declared incapacitation just before schools opened. They are demanding that the Government restore their pre-2018 salaries of roughly US$540 per month.

It is regreted to note that all civil servants be it educators, security and health personnel they enjoy hefty packages towards every election period. Soon they will easily forget their tears of agony and then get bussed in the same bus that suffocated their breathe come 2023 elections.

Good Evening Comrades

i am pleased to have come back to you as the real Tkt, khule vanga vachida kuvhiringa ID yangu vaneta manje,

NOW, on the subject in question, i will maintain my stance that May Teachers be UNITED in this cause, numbers never lie yes thats the truth

from a total of 50 000 tcrs you find only -- 1 000 not reporting for duty, obviously for incapacitation
-- 5 000 will go on leave
-- 3 000 will go on sick leave
& the rest will be at school

kubatana chaiko hamuna imi vanhu vanozviti,mateacher thats why the threats of Gvt always work on you

I have discovered that about 70-80% of teachers are not UNION members hence will not heed the call by UNIONS not to submit themselves

Pliz vanhu woye, dai magara pasi wese anonzi teacher, zvobatsirei kupiwa,21000 transport to and from work for the 22 days in a month ichi svika 2200 ATLEAST or double that? garai pasi imi otherwise musazoti nyaudza kuti hee mari chino,nechocho

THE NON APPEARANCE OF MOST TEACHERS AT THEIR WORK STATIONS RESTS SQUARELY ON GOVERNMENT'S SHOULDERS.

THIS PROBLEM HAS NOT STARTED TODAY OR YESTERDAY. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS KNOWN THIS PROBLEM FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. WHY DOES IT NOT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM ?

TEACHERS DEMANDS ARE LOGICAL TO ANY REASONABLE PERSON WHO HAS 5 TICKING SENSES. TEACHERS ARE SAYING THEY WANT THEIR SALARIES TO BE PEGGED AT 2018 SALARY OF US$520 OR ITS EQUIVALENT IN RTGS.

OUR GOVERNMENT IS THREATENING TEACHERS WITH "NO WORK, NO PAY" POLICY WHICH THEY CLAIM, ANNOYINGLY, THAT IT IS APPLIED WORLD OVER.

WHAT GOVERNMENT IS DOING IS GOING TO COST THEM HEAVILY IN ALL FUTURE ELECTIONS, STARTING WITH THE ONCOMING BY-ELECTIONS.

CITIZENS ARE ANGRY WITH ZANU PF GOVERNMENT POLICIES. THEY WILL SEE THEIR ANGER IN THE BALLOT BOX. THEY SHALL VOTE WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR.

THAT CREATURE CALLED NJNC WAS CREATED BY GOVERNMENT TO HOODWINK CIVIL SERVANTS ONLY. I DO NOT KNOW WHY APEX COUNCIL STILL ATTENDS ITS MEETINGS. NJNC IS A TOOTHLESS BULLDOG.

SCHOOL HEADS HAVE NOW JOINED COLLEAGUES AND DEMANDING US$520 OR ITS RTGS EQUIVALENT.

I don't know why you're so ignorant, so teachers should teach your kids whilst they can't send their own kids to school because they can't afford school fees

I think even parents should hold their children as well kana zve fisrt 1-2weeks for the Gvt ione kuti ndiyo inokonzeresa mbodza dzese.. Tinonyeperwa zvakawanda jus becoz we don't have time to find out about our xul situations.
As it stands Gvt inenge yakuwana scapegoat as if they care neEducation yemuno.

Handifungi pane angaite deliver results under such circumstances mostly for teachers vatinotarisira kuita plan and teach in xuls. Motivated teachers are crucial resources if we want best results.... civil Servants ngavapiwe Mari inline ne at least PDL published by same Gvt....
