Teachers Union reject cushioning allowance offer

The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) has rejected the deal of ZWL$400 that they had agreed with the government yesterday.

The government and civil servants held a National Joint Negotiating Commission (NJNC) in which the government offered to pay a cushioning allowance to them to provide relief from the harsh economic environment for the remaining five months.

Posting on their twitter handle the ARTUZ said, “Flatly the deal agreed by NJNC .The $400 cushioning allowance agreed for July falls far short of the monthly needs of the workers.The claim that negotiations for a Conditions of Living adjustment are underway are not sincere but an attempt to buy time ,”

“The employer must know that we don’t want a but a salary ,we only need a salary equivalent to US$500 we used to earn .Mthuli Ncube must give us answers on where they are putting our US$440 they’re illegally deducting from our US$500 agreed salary #notoslavewage,”
