NAGRAT declares indefinite strike

The National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has declared indefinite strike to push for the payment of the salary arrears of their members, which they claim, has been in arrears for three years.

President of NAGRAT, Angel Carbonu, also raised concerns about delays in reinstating teachers who have completed their study leave, something he blamed on the human resources management information systems (HRMIS).

At a news conference Thursday to declare the strike, Mr Carbonu said the HRMIS also raised concern about the nonpayment of allowances for additional services rendered by teachers and expiration of their collective bargaining agreement.

On the back of these issues, he has asked its members “who are yet to reopen” to “stay away from the school premises even when they reopen”.
