The South African Democratic Teachers Union held a picket outside the department of education on Wednesday.

Jonavon Rustin SADTU’s Provincial secretary said the picket is in aid of demands by SADTU to have the Department of Basic Education’s director General Bobby Soobrayan dismissed as he collapsed collective bargaining and is inefficient to run the department of education among other grievances which SADTU feels needs to be addressed.

Rustin explains that they want the Basic education Minister to be dismissed or either do the honourable ting and resign.

Furthermore Rustin said that they are also demanding that the department pay grade 12 markers, smaller class sizes, demanding that schools not be closed in the Western Cape, the provision of growth post to schools and the improvement of infrastructure at working class schools.

Furthermore SADTU’s Western Cape Provincial Chairman Bongani Mcoyana and principle of Sivile Primary school said that they want an immediate answer and if their demands are not met they will be picketing outside the department until their demands are met.

Mcyoyana said that as SADTU they are very serious is these are issues of great importance for the development of schools and to better the education in the country.
