SADTU in the Province of KwaZulu Natal is shocked and saddened by the failure of the department to pay normal stipends to many Grade R Practitioners. The 30th of April is supposed to be the pay day for them but they were not paid. This is nothing else but symptoms of a COLLAPSING department of education. By doing this the employer has shown to the public how uncaring and inhumane it has become.
The Department of education in KwaZulu Natal has declared WAR to not only the Grade R Practitioners but to all workers in education. The department cannot blame schools because we are aware that our principals signed and submitted the documents for renewal of contracts on time.
“An injury to one is an injury to all”
SADTU is busy enhancing the program to confront the employer and we have already spoken to them demanding that they must show to be responsible and pay with immediate effect – our call is for them to make sure that employees get their monies this coming Thursday.
