UNATU Vows To Fight The Proposed Policy

Our Reporter

Uganda National Teachers Union UNATU has vowed to fight a proposed policy by government prohibiting married teachers from working at the same school.

Addressing press in Kampala yesterday, the UNATU Secretary General James Tweheyo said the policy would frustrate the teachers, break their marriages and increase the spread of HIV in schools.

He warns that once the Education and Sports Minister Janet Kataha Museveni who is also the first lady, appends her signature to that proposal, they will raise up against her and the president Yoweri Museveni.


Meanwhile the teachers under UNATU have threatened not to report to work for the third term in case government fails to clear their salary arrears within two weeks.

Tweheyo said that the union is concerned with the nonpayment of salaries for most of the teachers without any official explanation for close to three months. He said in some districts and municipalities some teachers have not been paid since May.

According to the UNATU Secretary General, the union is also unhappy with government’s failure in some parts to effect the 15 percent pay rise of primary teachers which was awarded by government.
