No bonuses for “incapacitated” teachers

Public Service and Social Welfare Minister Professor Paul Mavima

Public Service and Social Welfare Minister Paul Mavima has warned that teachers who did not report for duty will not get bonuses for this year.

Mavima told Sunday News last night that if teachers do not report for duty, the government will not pay them bonuses as well as their salaries as it starts implementing a no-work no-pay principle. Said Mavima:

If teachers don’t work then they will not get a bonus. Those who will report to work will get bonuses.

Government will start paying bonuses this month while some will get their bonuses next month.

We are going to make sure that all civil servants get bonuses before Christmas.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education last week Friday submitted names of teachers who absconded work to the Public Service Commission.

The majority of teachers have refused to go to work since schools reopened in late September citing incapacitation.
