Teachers demand payment

Teachers Association General Secretary Ugwailubu Mowana demanded that the Government find the money to pay teachers the 3 percent for 2017 before the end of term one 2018.

Following the announcement made by the then Secretary for Department of Personnel Management John Kali last month to commence paying teachers, the Government promised 3 percent pay increase in March 2017.

Since then, several meetings have been held between the PNG Teachers Association and responsible Government authorities in relation to the outstanding Teaching Service Salary Fixation Agreement.
