Zimbabwean teachers have suspended a national strike. It has been reported by the teacher’s unions on Sunday, February 10. However, if the Zimbabwe government does not fulfill their provisions, the teachers may begin to protest again.
Zimbabwean teachers are demanding the wages to be in US dollars and an increase in allowances that can protect them from the financial difficulties amid inflation.
Zimbabwean teachers went on strike on February 5 after the negotiations between the government and public sector workers. The dialogue has been interrupted, and it has shattered trust between the parties and also heightened political tensions.
The Zimbabwe Teachers Association and the Progressive Teachers’ Union then met with Education Minister Paul Mavima. As a result, the teachers have agreed to return to work on Monday, given that their requirements will be fulfilled.
