Teachers to strike over their unpaid 2016 bonuses


A rural teachers union yesterday said it is going ahead to stage a strike next week Monday over their unpaid 2016 bonuses.

This comes as State health institutions’ doctors have also threatened to down tools tomorrow unless the hard pressed President Robert Mugabe’s government improves their remuneration and working conditions.




Meanwhile, long-suffering State doctors issued a warning to go on strike on Wednesday – unless President Robert Mugabe’s stone-broke government honours its promise of improving their conditions of work.

This comes as hundreds of thousands of civil servants, who include teachers, are at serious loggerheads with their employer – following the failure by the government to pay them their salaries on time, as well as bonuses, as promised by Mugabe last year despite the parlous state of the national fiscus.
