TEACHERS CALL FOR BIG MEETING

By Sifiso Nhlabatsi | 2018-08-20

IT would seem the decision to go on a waya waya strike by teachers is fast gaining momentum as teachers have made it clear that they intend to call for schools not to open.

This comes after the teachers have resolved to call a big meeting scheduled for August 24  at SNAT Centre. SNAT Secretary General Zweli Mndzebele confirmed that they will be having a meeting before schools open. He said the meeting which will take place on Friday has been called following the latest developments in the negotiating forum whereby government has offered a 0 per cent salary increment. Mndzebele said the agenda of the extraordinary meeting will be to give teachers a formal update and finding a way forward. Mndzebele said teachers will make a resolution on how they proceed after what government has offered.

The secretary general said it is expected that every teacher will attend the meeting.  Teachers who have been notified about the meeting have already made it clear that they know what will be discussed as they have already learnt through the media that the government is offering them zero per cent salary increment, the aggrieved teachers stated that the only thing that they will be vouching for during the meeting is for a resolution to down tools and nothing else.

 Earlier on this publication reported that disgruntlement among teachers is high and should their organisation, the Swaziland National Association of Teachers (SNAT) call them to a meeting they will vote for the downing of working tools.

Worth noting is that the meeting has been called just before schools open as the third term is expected to start on September  11, if the teacher’s  vote for the downing of  tools on Friday, schools might not open in September as expected.
