No salary review, no marking of June exams; As teachers corner government
PTUZ President Takavafira Zhou

ZIMBABWE – The teachers have continued to defy government’s attempts to unilaterally force the reopening of schoools without addressing major concerns that have been raised by the teachers through their unions.

PTUZ, one of the biggest teacher’ union recently made several demands that should be addressed before the schools reopen.

The demands cover both health and welfare areas as they demanded that all students and teachers be first tested for Covid-19 and that salaries be reviewed to reflect the realities of the economic situation.

In a recent series of tweets, PTUZ President Takavafira Zhou highlighted that the teachers had resoundingly agreed that they will boycott the marking of the June examinations until government address their salary issues.
