School Heads To Challenge Suspensions

School Heads To Challenge Suspensions

School heads who were suspended by the Public Service Commission (PSC) for failing to report for duty when schools opened for the 2022 first term on 7 February said they have resolved to approach the courts for redress.

Zimbabwe National Union of School Heads (ZINUSH) secretary-general Munyaradzi Majoni on Tuesday told NewsDay that they have no other option but to pursue the legal route. Said Majoni:

As a union, we did not receive what we intended to get from the last collective bargaining engagement, but we decided to acknowledge the little movement which had been done by persuading our members to resume duties while anticipating improved offers from forthcoming engagements with the employer.

The union has been using a three-pronged approach to deal with the illegal suspensions of our members with the third being taking the legal route in the event of the other two failing.

We realise that the other two approaches are slow to yield results and we have now activated the legal route. Our lawyers are now taking up the issues of the suspensions to the courts.

At the weekend, the PSC published names of newly-recruited teachers after suspending 1 500 teachers and 50 school heads for “striking”.

Thousands of teachers and some headmasters failed to report for duty when schools reopened citing incapacitation.

Last month, teachers who had also been suspended by the PSC, approached the High Court and Justice Fatima Chikapamambo Maxwell set aside their suspension.

The problem Teachers will face is being represented by Unions with political interests
ZCTU has same problem, NEC and NEWU sits and negotiate salaries in Rtgs$ then tell employees not to accept salaries in Rtgs$ wanting to cause conflicts between government and industry.
To teachers and Heads who got fired, am so sorry for you coz right now your unions going to court means they are at work and your cases will be dragged by the courts such that you wont even have 80 bond bus fair to attend court day 😂

look at the number fired and that of those at work! its like you we sold...
