Teachers to stage street protests in Harare
Teachers are this week planning industrial action and street demonstrations to express their dissatisfaction with President Mnangagwa’s government which they see as unresponsive to their affairs.
According to NewZimbabwe, the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) secretary general Raymond Majongwe said the government must vigorously address matters raised by their members.
The union intends to stage a resounding march in Harare this Friday.
“Our (demonstration) must be a resounding success and we urge our members to fully support our 9 November Harare march,” said Majongwe.
Meanwhile, the Amalgamated Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (Artuz) has intimated that the protest action will start this Thursday.
“ARTUZ and other revolutionary teachers will embark on second phase of our planned job actions this week on the 8th and 9th of November we are once again withdrawing our labour in protest against underpayment,” the union said in a statement.
“We demand our salaries in US dollars as negotiated as agreed in 2012. We note the arrogance of the employer who has given a deaf ear to our noble call for conditions of living adjustment to our salaries.
“It is our deep-rooted conviction that our series of protests will eventually melt the (government’s) cold arrogance and our salaries will be paid in US dollars is certain.”
ARTUZ has also thrown its weight behind the Harare march by PTUZ.
