2. NAGRAT in collaboration with other unions would ensure this year’s Professional Development allowance is paid. Teachers are encouraged to patronize CPD programmes to build their skills as well as their portfolios for license renewal.

3. NAGRAT has not had any discussion with any other Union to buy Pen Drive and Modem for any teacher. Teachers should therefore disregard any information to that effect.

4. The Association has made significant progress in the implementation of the TIER 3 of the Pension Scheme. There would be further communications on that soon.

5. NAGRAT has observed that there are some teachers and administrators in the Second Cycle institutions who throughout the year have not gone on vacation or leave. This has a strong tendency of affecting productivity. NAGRAT shall continue to engage GES to address this worrying phenomenon.

6. Promotion of teachers continue to experience challenges, NAGRAT is calling on GES to engage the Union in addressing these challenges.

7. It is the prerogative of GES to transfer teachers, however anyone transferred is entitled to two months’ gross salary as transfer grant. Some teachers have been transferred and for over two years now have not been paid their transfer grant. This must be addressed without further delay.

8. Payment of Responsibility allowance to teachers still remain a challenge. NAGRAT is calling on management of GES to without delay resolve this.

Also, teachers in the Basic Schools perform responsibilities such as Class Teacher, House Master/Mistress, guidance and counselling coordinators etc., yet do not receive any allowance. NAGRAT shall engage with sister Unions to exert the necessary pressure on GES to address this.

9. The Unions shall engage our employers to consider converting Car maintenance allowance to Transport allowance to be paid through CAGD to benefit all teachers since the current regime of payment of car maintenance allowance is not effective.

10. On the Laptops, the Unions are not in charge of procurement and distribution of the laptops. It is the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Finance who are mandated by law to do so. The Unions are monitoring the implementation process. It shall ensure everyone that is due gets the laptop.

It is true that distribution has delayed in the basic schools. It has been explained that, the large number of basic schools in country has contributed to the slow pace of the distribution.

Distribution has however started from the northern part of the country and shall continue to the south. Those in the Education Directorates shall also receive theirs.
