“Teachers have suffered enough come 14 October 2019 they will be indefinitely withdrawing their labor!!!!!!!!!! All teachers are invited to join this job action. Teacher munhuwo. Zvakwana!!!!!!!Sokukwanele!!!!,”
Teachers have asked for an increase of their salaries as their labor is not tallying with their salaries. Educational professionals have called upon the government to increase their salaries because of the ever rising cost of living which has eroded their salaries.
