Teachers’ Demands In 2020

Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe have issued a statement reiterating on the issues which the government has to address for them to effectively execute their duties and responsibilities.

Part of the statement which was posted on Facebook reads:

  • Interbank pegged salaries using our old United States dollar salaries as benchmark
  • A substantive rural retention attraction allowance to incentivize rural teachers
  • An education equalization fund to enhance access to quality education for marginalized communities
  • Fully Paid study leave for all teachers
  • Restoration of the legally provided vacation leave
  • Review of the new curriculum
  • Devolution of education planning and management
  • Expanding of social security to cover health care by a more transparent and accountable National Social Security Authority.
  • The scrapping of the opaque pension contribution replaced with a more transparent system.
  • Employment of more teachers to resolve the crisis of staff shortages.

The statement is issued when schools are reopening within a few weeks. Other teachers’ unions have since announced that they will not be going to work since they are incapacitated.
