Teachers Union misunderstood

The South African Teachers Democratic Union says that it is not demanding extra holidays for teachers, but being wrongly cited in media reports.

SADTU General Secretary Mugwena Maluleke said he never called for more or longer holidays but that he was highlighting the systematic challenges facing the Department and the quality of education. 

The Union is saying it was talking about the fact that “the system is dependent on teachers working on holidays”. SADTU received complaints from teachers saying that that their holidays are being taken away, as they have to take exams on the final day of term and then mark these at home, during weekends, or during their holidays.

This is causing stress on their families and that is why they are demanding that their holidays are respected.
