Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) is today meeting all its district chairpersons nationwide before proceeding with discussions with government later.
This follows the flop of the talks for covid-19 risk allowances with the government on Tuesday.
TUM president,Willie Malimba has confirmed the development but could not share resolutions of the Wednesday deliberations, saying the talks are ongoing.
But some delegates to the meeting claim TUM has stood its ground not to resume work until government commits to pay them the COVID-19 risk allowances.
Ministry of Education spokesperson Hamilton Chimala also said the talks are ongoing.
In July, 2020, the education taskforce on covid-19 recommended to government to give teachers risk allowances which would be at par with health workers.
The strike over the covid-19 risk allowances has paralysed learning in all public schools.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
