The South Darfur Teachers Committee, which is allied to the Sudanese Professionals Association, has decided to take over the teachers’ union headquarters in the state capital Nyala, and form new offices in a consensual and transparent manner, as well as to promote all the functions of the union after reviewing its assets and funds.

In a statement, the committee says it has also decided “to identify those who have wasted the union’s resources, resolve the salaries’ dropout, in addition to adjustment of wage differences and stopping all forms of unjustified deductions.”

The committee said that the decision came after the committee met with its officers and entire structures in Nyala and the various localities of the state and presented its integrated work plan as an integral part of the Sudanese Professionals Association in South Darfur as the phase requires.
