Teachers nationwide get paid

Teachers throughout the country were happy to receive their salary for this pay period.

Following the notice yesterday (Thursday) by acting secretary for Education Dr Uke Kombra, teachers confirmed that they received their pay.

Kombra had advised that due to technical problems with the Alesco HRIS, this has affected the processing of salaries for teachers nationwide and the public servants paid under the Education Payroll.

The Payroll Division processed the salaries manually and submitted the payroll files to the Department of Finance to send to the commercial banks.

Teachers in Central, Western Highlands, Manus and Milne Bay confirmed that they received their salary yesterday.

The latest was today (Friday) for the department’s public servants and teachers to get paid.

However, teachers and public servants who receive their pays through cheque will not be paid this payday until the system is restored.
