25 January 2017

SADTU Limpopo Province has had enough of continual failures and excuses in the management of education affairs in the province.

The Union will no longer tolerate the inexcusable continual explanations as the Department tries to justify their continual failures. SADTU has resolved to take to the streets of Polokwane to pressurise the Department to resolve the challenges with immediate effect least they face the reality of total shut-down of schools and departmental offices until the following issues are resolved:

Delivery of textbooks and stationery to all deserving schools;
Payment of salaries to all educators not paid some since April 2016;
Payment of all outstanding allowances and benefits owed to the educators and school principals such as:
Acting allowance for school principals;
Payment of IQMS; PMDs and housing allowances.
Proper infrastructure and maintenance development plans for schools;
Withdrawal of austerity measures by Provincial Treasury which hampers payments and appointment of teachers.
SADTU will conduct a provincial protest march as the first warning shots; to be followed by total shut-down of schools and offices in a mass-rolling actions provided the issues raised are not resolved.

The Provincial Protest Action is scheduled as follows:

Date: 26 January 2017
