Raw deal for teachers


TEACHERS’ salaries and allowances throughout the country have been compromised.
It isn’t the first time and it will not be the last time that teachers are treated like this.
A careful scan of teachers’ salary scale and allowances will show that successive governments have ignored the agreements put in place to address the issues.
Teachers are under pressure to achieve higher goals in education, but where is their just rewards?
In 2007 and 2011 the teachers were underpaid and that has not been corrected.
A simple payslip will definitely verify and confirm this.
The annual increments were also not actioned in those years.
When will this sort of nonsense stop?
Can someone do something to make right the anomalies in teachers’ salaries in 2007, 2011 and 2017?
