PRESS RELEASE


The Sierra Leone Teachers Union (SLTU) wishes to inform its members about developments relating to the ongoing negotiations between the Union and the employers of teachers, including government.

 

On the 20th May 2010, the Union submitted realistic and comprehensive proposals on pay and conditions of service of teachers to the Employers Panel.

 

After several meetings, the employers panel is yet to show a strong commitment to the proposals presented. The Union particularly notes the continued absence from negotiation meetings of the designated members on the Employers Panel.

 

Government is expected to do all within its powers to ensure the negotiations are concluded before the start of the new 2010/2011 academic year in the interest of industrial peace and harmony.

 

The Union leadership appreciates the continued patience of teachers in spite of the difficult conditions under which they work and assures all that the Union shall work to ensure negotiations are concluded before the start of the next school year. The membership shall be informed accordingly in due course.

 

Long Live SLTU!

 

Long Live Teacher Solidarity! !

 

Davidson A. Kuyateh SECRETARY GENERAL

 

All Communications should be addressed to the Secretary General
