The Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (Artuz) has announced that its members will go on strike starting Monday next week if the government fails to meet its demands.

The rural teachers have already informed the Civil Service Commission of their intention to engage in the job action. Artuz has demanded that the government pay teachers’ salaries in United States dollars as well as removing the 2% tax on electronic transactions.

In a letter dated December 31, 2018, Artuz wrote:

All Artuz members shall withdraw their labour beginning on January 7, 2018, as part of the industrial action. Regular updates shall be circulated to inform all members and stakeholders on any development regarding the strike action.

The rural teachers’ union has since written a circular to its members informing them of the planned job action:

We have notified the employer of our intention to withdraw labour beginning January 7 if the issues are not addressed. The teachers and the members of the working class will camp at the Finance ministry on January 7 demanding either an end to austerity or Ncube’s resignation from the position of Finance minister.
