The Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe has written a letter to the Public Service Commission advising it that teachers will report for duty on three days only, starting Monday 24 June 2019 due to incapacitation.
The teachers have made four demands to their employer which are as follows:
(1) A rescue package of US $200 over above our RTGS-denominated salaries;
(2) An urgent upward review of our salaries in line with the purchasing power parity principle;
(3) Non-payment of tuition fees for at least three of a teacher’s children; and
(4) Free and transparent allocation of land for accommodation purposes with clear time frames. Please note that the Non-Monetary incentive item has been dangled in our face whenever the government wants to pacify us. We want this settled once and for all.
