Public University Lecturers Announce Strike, Demand Salary Increment

University Lecturers from public universities have decided to announce a strike. This follows an ongoing strike of the arts teachers who have been saying they also need a salary increment like their science counterparts.

Public university lecturers argue that they need a salary increment because they have been patient long enough. This strike has come after the government gave teachers an ultimatum of two days to go back to class.

However, the Secretary-General, Filbert Baguma of UNATU said they are not threatened by the ultimatum. Meanwhile, this strike has left members of the public. Some are sympathizing with parents while others are siding with teachers.

“Can’t blame them, MPs have set aside a 193 billion budget to cater for inflation. How about the others? How are they supposed to survive in such times?” A one Sengo wrote.

“I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all parents in government schools, to the ministry of public service that has redirected the immediate reopening of education institutions that have been temporarily closed. Teaching and learning has resumed. Thanks,” a one Justus Kasigaire said.

Meanwhile, if government doesn’t work to find a solution to this problem, the education sector is going to face ruins.

Students can’t be in and out of school especially because they already lost a lot of time during Covid. Perhaps the ministry of education needs to find a feasible solution to this situation.
