Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) has resolved to resume the nationwide strike if government fails to honor its promises in a period of seven days.
This is a direct response from Covid-19 Taskforce which has rejected proposal for government to pay teachers three months risk allowances as agreed by between TUM and Parliament Committee earlier this month.
In the agreement, the teachers had agreed to go back to work on the understanding that Education committee would take the agreement to the Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19 for implementation.
In a letter addressed to TUM president, Parliament’s Education Committtee chairperson Brenex Kaise simply quoted the response from Presidential Taskforce on Covid-19.
Following the response TUM has resolved to resume the nationwide strike following government’s failure to provide them with allowances for personal protective equipment as per agreement.
TUM has given the government a seven day notice to respond before they begin the strike.
