The NUT scribe said that the lingering issues over which the union embarked on the strike included the non-payment of monthly salaries to primary school teachers as at when due.

Others are wilful downgrading of teachers and non-payment of minimum wage arrears of primary school teachers.

The teachers are also protesting the non-payment of CONPSS arrears May/June 2015, illegal deduction of teachers’ salaries and the non-implementation of inter cadre transfer of teachers in PPEB.

“Non-implementation of teachers’ promotions by PPEB and SUBEB, non-payment of promotion arrears of primary and secondary school teachers and non-payment of retired teachers’ benefits,” he said.

He said that teachers were advised to await further instructions over the industrial action.
