Workers' MPs are set to meet teachers in a bid to diffuse a looming strike over salary increment.
Workers' MP Marion Tunde told the New Vision on Thursday that Workers' MPs will meet teachers under their umbrella body, UNATU to forge a way forward.
"They (teachers) have genuine reasons but as leaders we think a strike is not a better way of resolving their grievances," Tunde said.
Teachers have threatened to go on strike starting July 22 unless their salaries are enhanced to meet the soaring cost of living caused by inflation.
Tunde said they have asked the teachers' body to write a petition promising to lobby Parliament to recommend a pay rise for all civil servants.
