Teachers Petition Govt Over Regrading, COVID-19 Allowances

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has petitioned the government over COVID-19 allowances and regrading. The Union said some of its members attained higher qualifications hence the need to regrade them. ARTUZ also wants the government to give teachers’ aides COVID-19 allowances arguing that they face the same risk as teachers. We present ARTUZ’s petitions in full below.

RE: Petition on teacher re-grading and COVID 19 allowance.

We the teachers of Zimbabwe, categorized as grade C by the employer and organizing under the Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe, ARTUZ;

Aggrieved by the employers’ failure to re-grade the majority of us who have acquired higher qualifications including diplomas, undergraduate Degrees and Masters Degrees;
Angered by the move to exclude us from the 10% COVID 19 allowance meant for teachers;

Realising that we are exposed to the COVID19 risk like other teachers;

Noting that Section 56 of Zimbabwe’s constitution outlaws discrimination;

Do hereby petition your esteemed office to;

  1. Re-grade all Grade C teachers who have attained higher qualifications;
  2. Disburse 10% COVID19 allowance to all teachers since they are confronted by the same risk.

We are giving your esteemed office 7 days to respond to our humble petition.
