Teachers' unions split over September 1 nationwide strike

A house divided...

While Mr Sossion holds that the strike would commence on September 1, rival Kuppet officials have trashed the civil strive terming it a waste of time.

KUPPET chairman Amboko Milemba has urged teachers affiliated to his union ignore the call from Mr Sossion, saying the issues Knut has raised can be handled through talks.

“Teachers do not need to go on strike at this time. There are no reasons,” said Mr Milemba in an interview.

He added: “As Kuppet we believe in engaging our employers and not through unnecessary strikes which will interfere with learning in schools.”

Earlier, Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has threatened to lead teachers in the strike from September 1 to push the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to drop performance appraisal for teachers.
