Government has advised teachers who are on industrial strike that they will not receive their April salaries if they will not report for duties by Monday April 12, 2021.
The warning comes barely a day after a fruitless meeting between Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) leadership led by its President Willy Malimba and government officials.
According to inside sources,the government team which is leading negotiations with Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM), has already communicated the stand to Tum executive during a meeting which took place in Lilongwe on Thursday.
Our sources say the meeting, which was also attended by Malawi Congress of Trade Union leadership, ended without a resolution as government maintained its stand of no risk allowances for teachers, while TUM insisted on continuing with the sit-in until government changes its decision.
Effort to talk to TUM President Willy Malimba proved futile.
Meanwhile it is yet to be seen if teachers will report for duties on Monday.
