Teachers Now Demanding Salary Increases
Teachers are now calling for Government to provide them with salary increases. Public servants believe that government does not care about them and that workers should be paid what they deserve.
Teachers are now demanding that they receive salary increases.
Public servants have been offered a 0% increase in salaries and wages from government. Workers are asking for a 8,3% increase and this includes teachers.
Teacher salaries are said to not have increased for the past two years.
One teacher told eNCA:
In terms of salary increment, unions and workers have done a lot but the government is undermining the effort being done.
Negotiations between unions and government are said to not be looking optimistic.
Government has said that they can't afford to provide salary increases but as teachers say, they are spending money on other less important things without consulting anyone.
With the cost of living getting higher and higher each year and with a pandemic which has resulted in a high number of job losses, calls for increases are no surprise.
We can't survive under this inflation with what we are getting.
Unions have said that it's unfair that government is not hearing workers cries while engaging with them.
Some teachers are also saying that they work far from home and transport costs are putting a burden on their finances.
Public servants around the country marched last Saturday on Workers' Day for wage and salary hikes.
