Not all schools affected by SADTU protest

Cosatu in the Western Cape has called on learners to join the march aimed at putting pressure on Basic Education Minister Angie Motshega and her Director General Bobby Soobryan to resign following a dispute in the bargaining chamber.
The dispute ignited when a document that would have seen matric markers obtaining a 100% increase was suddenly withdrawn.
The union says that action was unilateral and compromises the integrity of collective bargaining.
But, Motshega has stood her ground saying that there was agreement that the document should not have been signed in the first place and another process was underway to replace that document.


The march follows the teachers’ union work-to-rule action which started at the beginning of the term.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Parents in Governance has called on parents to ensure that their children go to school on Wednesday. Chairperson Mahlomola Kekana says various student organisations are going to be helping learners in different schools should teachers decide to join the strike.
"All learners are to report to their schools as usual. We are appealing to all parents to ensure their children report to schools. We want to thank t heANCYL and Sasco for availing their members from various universities to assist our children," says Kekana.
