Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) has cancelled a nationwide strike teachers were holding aimed at forcing the Tonse Alliance government of Dr. Lazarus Chakwera to grant them covid-19 risk allowances.
TUM President Willie Malimba has confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.
According to Malimba, the stay away has been called off because of pressure from the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of education and Commissioner of labour to sign a letter, calling off the industrial action.
Malimba has said that the teachers will now pave way for negotiations with authorities.
The teachers have been on strike for two weeks now.
