“We are very disappointed at what has happened because it is unfair that they have created a three tier government where they chose soldiers and the police and treated other civil servants like teachers as the least of all,” Majongwe said.
“Teachers were only given 17% while others were given 22%, but I am not saying that soldiers do not deserve 22% – in fact they deserve more given their living conditions. What I am against is the discrimination.”
The PTUZ letter sent to Simbarashe Mumbengegwi, the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Monitoring Government Programmes described the salary discrepancies as “unjustified, unfair labour practices”.
“We note as teachers that our cause has been betrayed by the bogus collective bargaining entity called National Joint Negotiating Council where the workers side is seriously compromised. Senior managers in education get far less than their equivalent in other ministries. The differences are just too glaring to ignore and as a union we believe such discrepancies are not only unacceptable, but scandalous,” the letter to Mumbengegwi read.
Majongwe said they will be expecting a response from government as soon as possible to deal with the disgruntled teachers.
“We know that this package to soldiers and police is meant to send a certain signal. The problem is that we are dealing with a government which is trying to campaign and on the other hand to stabilise things,” he said. Source – newsday
