Teachers Put Down Tools Over Salary Increment In Uganda

As the East african legislator’s are trying to fix up a single education system in the East african community, Uganda which is one of the East african countries, teachers are having a strike and this is due to the failure by the government  of Uganda to rise their salary to 10% as their request.

The prime minister of Uganda Ruhakana Rugunda who’s the government representative towards this issue told the teachers in the meeting attended by their leaders in their union which is:

Uganda National Association Teachers union

That teachers should be patient about this issue and continue with the typical routine in schools which will be resolved in the year 2016 – 2017 financial budget, “said minister Rugunda.”

This is the second day of the their strike that started yesterday which simply means that they did not agree with the prime minister yet schools opened yesterday for the second term commencement.

They are striking the second time over the same issue of their salary increment but the government promised to deal with their issue, but unfortunately it did not happen as expected. I pray that the government of Uganda will help to solve this issue as soon as possible so that our children don’t miss out.

Hope that the asperity teachers have towards their refusal in the increase of their salary doesn’t affect the students and pupils in schools especially the candidates who have their mock exams this term in order to prepare for their final exams set by the Uganda National Examinations Board next term.
