Uganda National Teachers Union (UNATU) has vowed to lay down tools should teacher’s demands of a 10% salary increment for the financial year 2015/2016 fails to be met.
This resolution was reached at in a meeting held last week at the
UNATU offices along Bombo Road in Kampala.
According to the press release signed by the General Secretary James Tweheyo, ‘UNATU’s stand on the teachers’ salary increment for FY 2015/16 remains unchanged.
“We will continue to engage the responsible authorities on this matter and if it remains unresolved by the beginning of the next school term. We will withdraw our labor and not report for term two” part of the release reads in part.
Over the Shs25bn pledge to the teachers’ SACCO, the meeting resolved to meet or communicate to the President and officially withdraw its request for the Shs 25bn for the teachers’ SACCO fund given the fact that the Union has sought for both internal and external option to finance the teachers’ SACCO.
