The United Teacher Union of Zambia has strongly urged the newly employed teachers to report to their work stations promptly as guided by the Ministry of Education.
In a statement this morning, Union Executive President Paul Chipimo says let service delivery to this great nation come first.
Mr Chipimo has implored the new teachers to go out there and provide the service diligently, effectively and passionately for the good of our nation.
He said it is a bold decision on the part of government and highly commendable for providing employment to these teachers under very challenging circumstances.
“We wish to join the thousands of Zambians in congratulating the newly employed teachers by the Teaching Service Commission of Zambia on behalf of the new dawn government. The nation is grappling with debts, high inflation, high cost of fuel, high cost of living andd depreciation of the kwacha,” he said.
“We wish to thank the government and commend them for providing jobs to the thousands of teachers in a challenging economic environment.”
He since appealed to the Ministry of Education to provide clear guidance to the newly recruited teachers and ensure that they are settled quickly and smoothly in their work stations.
“UNITUZ therefore welcomes the 7,222 teachers recruited in 2023 to the teaching fraternity. Once more, congratulations and welcome to the teaching fraternity,” he concluded.
