We’II address your concerns-Govt to TEWU
The government has indicated that it will address the concerns of the Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU).
TEWU declared a strive action nationwide on Wednesday in demand for better conditions of service from the government.
According to the Union, it is unfortunate that for two years, the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission has not been able to finalize issues on its condition of service, while members continue to work under very difficult situations.
However, their strike action led to a meeting which was organized by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, TEWU, and government represented by the Ministry of Finance, Education and Labour Employment Ministry.
After the meeting, it was agreed that a job re-evaluation will be conducted for members of TEWU who are exposed to imminent hazards as far as the issue of Risk Allowances was concerned.
“That in furtherance of this agreement, the Secretariat of the VCG should make available to the leadership of TEWU relevant documents relating to the issue before Friday,” the statement read.
“On the issue of Non-basic Allowance, consultations would be held with the Government on Certificate of urgency and the outcome conveyed to TEWU as soon as possible,” the statement added.
