In a letter to Finance minister Mthuli Ncube, Amalgamated Teachers Union of Zimbabwe secretary general Robson Chere said they are going to march from Mutare to Harare in a protest to demand salaries in United States Dollars and demanding higher bonus payment.
Chere said they are going to walk from December 9 to 19 from Mutare to Harare. Chere said the teachers will camp at Ncube’s offices until their issues are addressed. Said Chere:
In terms of section 59 of the Constitution , teachers are going to march demanding that their salaries be paid in US dollars and that their bonuses be paid in full. Teacher’s salaries are being paid in RTGS, contrary to the 2012 negotiated agreement that salaries would be paid in United States dollars. The teachers will camp at the ministry of Finance and Economic Development offices until their grievances are met.
