There was relative tranquility in schools Tuesday after restless teachers started receiving pay-slips reflecting the much-awaited 2015 bonuses.
Three teachers’ organisations confirmed to Studio 7 that their members started receiving the pay-slips Tuesday.
Rural Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe and Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe had both warned that their members were not going to conduct classes starting today if the government failed to pay them their outstanding bonuses.
Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe coordinator Brighton Makunike said the money will only have real value when that particular money is reflecting in their bank accounts.
“At the moment the majority of our members yes they have received pay-slips with the bonuses reflecting, but they are still yet to see the money reflecting in their accounts,” said Makunike.
Sources though said most teachers were disappointed when they failed to access the money from their banks as most banks ran out of cash.
