Teachers divided over Govt’s decision to increase NSSA contributions

Teachers organisations’ opinion is divided over government’s move to increase their monthly contributions to the National Social Security Authority (NSSA). Government recently increased civil servants’ NSSA contributions from 3% to 3,5%, a move that left the workers’ unions divided.

The Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) secretary-general, Raymond Majongwe said they are against the decision by Government as it continues to make their members poor since they are getting salaries lower than the expected poverty datum line. However, Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association (Zimta) president, Sifiso Ndlovu said the increase was necessary to cushion civil servants on retirement.
