COSATU North West welcomes the absorption of 4637 teachers by the department of education
COSATU North West has noted the decision of the North West government EXCO to absorb 4637 professionally qualified temporary teachers. We commend the North West government for taking such a bold step and also wish to congratulate our affiliated union SADTU for their persistence in dealing with this matter, and hope that this will bring an end to a protracted struggle that these temporary teachers had to endure.
The federation is extremely confident that this gesture will go a long way in boosting the moral of public servants in general and teachers in particular. In a country that is besieged with negative stories, this positive news is welcome.
We call upon other government departments in particular the department of health to work closely with COSATU unions to address all challenges experienced by workers in that sector.
