Basic and secondary school teachers in Tullus locality embarked on a strike today, in protest against the delayed payment of their financial entitlements.

The director of the Tullus basic schools, Mohamed Yagoub, told Radio Dabanga that the salaries were reduced with five percent eight months ago.

“The commissioner of the locality had promised the Tullus Teachers Union branch that the teachers would be compensated. Yet, nothing of this kind happened,” he explained.

“After staging a sit-in this (Monday) morning in front of the locality commissioner’s office in Tullus, and we received no reply, we decided to strike.”
