Teachers Plan To March To Parliament

Teachers Plan To March To Parliament

The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) plans to march to Parliament on 4 March to deliver a petition in a move aimed at pushing the Government to improve teachers’ working conditions.

In a letter addressed to the Clerk of Parliament, PTUZ secretary-general Raymond Majongwe requested Parliament to facilitate the handing over of the petition to relevant office bearers. Part of the letter reads:

PTUZ intends to deliver a petition to the Speaker of the National Assembly as well as the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare as well as that of Primary and Secondary Education.

We intend to hold a procession on March 4, 2022, along routes we have informed the regulatory authorities about, but culminating in our handing over of a petition to the three offices at Parliament.

We request your office to facilitate the presence of the relevant office bearers when we hand over the petition at 1100hrs on the day.

PTUZ has also informed the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) of its plans to march between 10 am and 12 PM and asked for a police escort.

Earlier this month the Government offered civil servants, including teachers, a 20% salary hike, US$100 cash and other incentives.

Teachers’ unions rejected the offer as too little but the Government threatened to fire all school heads and teachers who had been on strike since schools opened for the first term on 7 February.

This is all happening as a result of a failed leadership,failed state,failed political system.People,the ordinary people,the civil service,the private sector cannot from nowhere unanimously agree to oppose govt for no reason.We have headless chickens in govt who actually add petrol to a raging fire thinking they are dousing it.Parents who are trying to play patriotic here are zombies.Kids will suffer from sheer greediness.Next you want doctors and nurses back to work because you want to protect your part.It does not work that.Equal pay for equal work case closed

If theyre going to get 375usdollrs plus the many packs we hear of kufundisirwa.vana.shopping trips etc mari yakwana.
Nekuwada kwavakaita hazvigoneke.
Teaching is a calling like Nursing ngavadzokere pabasa.

yes teachers have a right to go on strike but chandisingade ndechekuitira extra lessons muclass, vachidzinga vana wedu isu tisngade kuwapa Mari ye extra lessons because of our reasons

Offering extra lessons in the classroom is illegal on many levels
1. Thats school premises
2. School resources(chalk , classroom furniture)
3. They should also nt give their own students extra lessons as this is a repetition of the same methods that we done in the classroom which ddnt work in the first place hence the student in need of those extra lessons
4. Teachers have a tendency of telling students that those who wl not extra lessons later wl miss out as this is when they put more effort than during work hours

Students who need extra lessons shld be taught by a different teacher so as to avoid teachers being biased towards their moonlight classes.
