By Jonan Beinomugisha
The industrial action for all government teachers in primary and secondary schools across the country have today laid down their salary enhancements.
Speaking to www.mknewslink.com, at UNTU’s offices in Mbarara town, David Muhanguzi kaninga the Uganda National Teachers Union (UNTU) coordinator, the teachers gave the government 90 days ultimatum to address their issue of salary enhancement which have ended today, nothing has been done.
According Muhanguzi the ultimatum was given to government on 20th February this year.
He noted that it is fortunate that the industrial action has began when the students are still in their holiday, calling up on all teachers to stay at home until the government addresses their problem.
Muhanguzi went ahead and asked the parents not to send their children at school because they won’t find there any teacher to attend to them.
Meanwhile, the undersecretary at ministry of education had earlier asked teachers to be patient until the budget is read in June.
