At a marathon meeting with the Committee on Education, the leadership of POTAG was adamant on their demand for 2013 and 2014 arrears of research allowances.
However, the leaders eventually accepted the pleas of the members of the Education Committee to use dialogue to resolve the impasse and prevail on the government to pay their allowances.
DAILY GUIDE’s sources said that POTAG members have agreed in principle to sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) brokered by members of the Education Committee.
The sources told the paper that the polytechnic teachers in the MOU want to see practical steps being taken by government to pay their arrears before they would go back to the classroom.
The polytechnic teachers also called for a timeframe by which government would pay their arrears.
They appealed to the authorities to fully consult them on matters relating to the determination of their salaries and allowances.
The committee is yet to present the MoU to the Ministry of Education for action to be taken.
