Press Statement on 02 November 2020

ZIMTA IS A PROFFESIONAL TEACHER TRADE UNION EXISTING TO SERVE TEACHERS

1. The first choice professional trade union for teachers in Zimbabwe, (ZIMTA), takes this opportunity to remind and reassure all professional teachers in Zimbabwe that the necessary groundwork and research needed for teachers to deal decisively with incapacitation is being done. Teachers will continue to be fully represented without fear or favour.

2. ZIMTA and its leadership thanks all of you who have been taking time to engage on issues of incapacitation and everyone who is taking part in the ongoing discussions about NJNC talks and scenarios and the choices available for teachers.

3. We hereby urge all of you professional teachers not to be disturbed by the ongoing side shows being put up by rival teacher unions and individuals who spend loads of precious time on social media discussing imaginary meetings, talks, discussions and situations taking place in ZIMTA. Obviously we as the leading professional teacher association in Zimbabwe do not expect much from these briefcase teachers unions, cm political parties whose main agenda is to drag ZIMTA’s professionalism into the mud.

4. As Bona –Fide members would know, OURS is a professional union, for professional teachers whose main occupation is teaching, not politics or gambling or smear campaigns.

5. Bona Fide Teachers would also be aware that there is absolutely nothing wrong with engaging the government of the day, with a view to explaining our situation and seeking for win –win scenarios rather than dwelling on adversarial campaigns that might not bring teachers out of their incapacitation dilemma.

6. ZIMTA is a legend in the game of trade unionism. Not only do we lead in terms of membership, but our ideas and strategies have kept teacher trade unionism alive for the past 80 years in Zimbabwe. We are still here and still leading.

7. Contrary to what you hear from projects such as Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe(ARTUZ) with an estimated 100 teachers in their data-base and PTUZ which has about 15 percent of TOTAL ZIMTA’s membership, ZIMTA is officially the leading trade union of choice, professionally delivering on teachers’ needs and welfare issues and practical labour matters.

8. We are aware of the all the hate speech campaigns, lies and misrepresentations about ZIMTA ‘s engagement with the State President, But we are not moved or irked by ARTUZ and Progressive Teachers’ Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ)’s machinations or other much insignificant rivals aspiring to get to the ZIMTA level of professionalism and skill, Contrary to their actions , ours is to encourage them to join us , so that we may capacitate them and work with them for the benefit of the Teachers, whom they purport to represent.

9. Finally, WE CALL on Teachers to remain FOCUSED, remain CALM. WE are here to Represent YOU.

10. ZIMTA is the Teachers, the Teachers are ZIMTA.

Solidarity Forever! ……ALUTA Continua………ZIMTA FOR LIFE

02/11/2020

Your First Choice Professional trade union for teachers in Zimbabwe (ZIMTA) remains committed to delivering better salaries for teachers.

Teachers do not be swayed by side shows, or political projects posing as teacher's unions . Do not be disturbed by Hate Speech, All eyes on the Ball, We need meaningful salaries, ZIMTA remains committed to representing TEACHERS.

incapacitate

If you are incapacitated, you can’t do what you normally do, what you’re being asked to do — or perhaps, much of anything. To incapacitate someone is to cause him or her to be unable to function normally, like a bad cold that incapacitates you.

PRESS STATEMENT

WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY 5 OCTOBER 2020

TEACHERS : LEADING IN CRISIS

1. Whilst teachers across the globe have celebrated World Teachers’ Day in style, the story has been sad and different for the Zimbabwean Teacher who has been financially incapacitated to work for quite some time.

2. Because Teachers have been subsidizing the employer for too long, their failure to attend to their daily duties has not been surprising for many. It is now in the employers’ best interest to source funding and pay teachers salaries that are denominated in United States dollars.

3. Whilst Teachers across the world are taking charge and leading in a period of the COVID 19 crisis, the Zimbabwean teacher has been made irrelevant, due to incapacitation and poor salaries that no longer sustain the desire or motivate them to work.

4. Teacher incapacitation in general terms means that the usually passionate educator, has been depressed and underpaid, to a point of making them incapable of delivering the much needed quality teaching that should lead to progressive , all rounded citizens.

5. Teachers are torch bearers, with a unique responsibility of inspiring and providing hope for future generations, therefore, they should never be misdirected to think that their value is not vital.

6. The Government of the day, has the sole responsibility of preserving the teachers’ integrity and credibility because Teachers have a unique role of inspiring hope for the future.

7. During this month of October, as the world celebrates Teachers, the Government of Zimbabwe is once again reminded, that as subscribers to AGENDA 2030, SDG 4, Teachers shall remain your key, and utmost important resource , to achieving quality education for all.

8. The month of October is for us all to reflect, review and restate the importance of teachers, in classrooms, in communities , in countries and all over the WORLD

9. Quality, motivated, well paid teachers are needed now and in the future for Zimbabwe’s economy to work.

10. Spare a thought for the incapacitated teacher, during this month of October 2020.

HAPPY Teachers Month to all committed YET incapacitated Teachers across ZIMBABWE

We Educate the Nation!

5 Oct World Teachers DAY.......

05/10/2020

5 Oct 2020 is World Teachers' Day

THEME:
Teachers' LEADING in Crisis
Reimagining the FUTURE

This very DAY , 5 October 2020, will go down memory lane as a VERY VERY SAD DAY, because , educators across Zimbabwe only anticipated celebrations, they also anticipated to hold workshops, seminars and marches across ZIMBABWE for "World Teachers' Day" 2020. Let us not forget that , Teaching is a Noble Profession, whose professionals are learned and qualified people, who trained for many many years to impart skills and knowledge to future generations.
These same professionals deserve recognition from the largest employer, the government of Zimbabwe, who should be ensuring that QUALITY education is maintained and provided for future generations by ensuring that QUALITY teachers are rewarded within the same education system.

Teachers need an INCENTIVE to reimagine the future. Teachers lead through crisis through their NEVER ending calls for better Salaries. Health and SAFETY issues must be prioritized during this COVID 19 pandemic era. The Government of Zimbabwe must work with us, to get the professional advice they need to ensure that quality is maintained throughout in ALL schools, at ALL times.

Nevertheless, HAPPY Teachers DAY to all Incapacitated Teachers!!!!

Happy Teachers Day to ALL, who have unwavering commitment to duty YET lack the necessary financial means to enable them to continue to TEACH.

UNITED WE STAND!

ALUTA Continua, KEEP IT REAL, KEEP IT BURNING

The STRUGGLE is ON!

As we go about this DAY Today.....

May We, "parents, parliamentarians, lawyers, learners, communities, businesses, farmers, bankers, universities, human rights activists, and all those concerned about the future generation," Spare a Thought for the Zimbabwean Teacher, whose working conditions continue to deteriorate on a daily basis.......

Teachers' Salaries MATTER. Teachers Deserve BETTER

This is a reminder to ALL, that No Quality Teacher equals No Quality Education, YET ZIMBABWE needs Quality Education. Zimbabwe subscribes to the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, and therefore also subscribes to SDG goal number 4,

SDG Goal Number 4 , aims to "ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” This goal must be driven by the Government of Zimbabwe. Teachers are a critical resource that will enable government to succeed in achieving SDG 4, but Zimbabwean Teachers Need Motivation.

How Does the Government of Zimbabwe Achieve THIS?

# Teachers' Salaries Matter: PAY Teachers well this month of September 2020.

# Teachers Deserve BETTER Salaries

#Teachers Need USD rated Salaries

#Teachers Must be Paid meaningful Allowances


We Teach, We are Professionals, We are Educated, We Shape future GENERATIONS
#TEACHERS' SALARIES MATTER

The current indecent, inadequate, unreasonable, below standard, salaries offered for teachers remain unacceptable.

Give the teacher a reasonable salary in order to meet satisfactory working conditions as per the UNESCO declaration.
