Science Teachers And Arts Teachers Are Now Sitting Separately In Some Schools – Richard Mwebaze

Richard Mwebaze, the Chief Legal Officer of UNATU, has said the salary segregation has brought a separation between arts and science teachers.

Apparently, in some schools, science teachers and arts teachers now sit separately. The root cause of this, he says is the government that decided to uphold one group above the other. He said this while on a late-night talk show on NBS.

Richard said UNATU had earlier asked government to increase salary for all of them, not just some.

“We agreed that if the government was to increase the salaries, there wouldn’t be segregation. We are not saying that the science teachers shouldn’t get their money, but the arts teachers should get their money too.”

He informed the public that the strike is still on until something is done about the situation. In 2018, he says UNATU sat with government to agree upon a number of issues but they have never been fulfilled.

“In 2018, we sat with government. We reached an agreement that the government will increase teachers’ salaries in the financial years; 2018-2019, 2020-2021, 2022-2023. But this agreement wasn’t put into action.”

The tutors have drawn a line for the government and this time it seems they are determined. They have refused to heed to threats as usual.

However in all, it’s the students that are suffering because they are missing a lot.
