Teachers salaries

TSC: Teachers' salaries must be addressed at provincial level

Teaching Service Commission (TSC) chairman Baran Sori says this issue is ongoing every year and many of the issues including salaries, leave fares and allowances can be resolved at the provincial education offices.

Baran addressed the media today regarding reports of teachers demanding their overdue payments.

He said TSC receives 7000 queries each year but not so much is about pays and entitlements, which is a positive sign.

“52,000 teachers were given a 10 percent increment since 2013 and that is an indication that they’re recognised by the State,” said Baran.
