Uganda: no salary increment for Arts teachers – Yoweri Museveni

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday firmly reiterated that there will be salary increase for teachers of humanities.

Delivering his address at the national celebration of World Teachers’ Day at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala, Mr Museveni assailed proponents of accelerated reopening of schools closed over Covid and put teachers on notice not to put him on tenterhooks over money, DailyMonitor reports.

This declaration throws into disarray a 2018 Collective Bargaining Agreement under which the government pledged uniform salary increase for all teachers.
