Chad: Teachers Announce Restart of Strike Two Months After School Resumed

1 Min Read

The Syndicate of Teachers of Chad (SET) resumed their strike on Friday, March 15th, following a General Assembly held the day before. The movement to denounce unfulfilled promises by the authorities had been suspended in January after two months and consultations with Prime Minister Succès Masra. However, according to the SET, the agreements have not been implemented.

As a symbolic gesture to celebrate the movement’s revival two months later, the SET decided to return five bags of cereal to the government. The prime minister offered these to demonstrate the government’s good faith in the syndicate agreements.

However, according to the president of the syndicate’s crisis committee, Faustin Djimoudouel, the agreements on salaries, bonuses, and careers have not been implemented.

This development underscores ongoing tensions between educators and the government in Chad, highlighting the challenges in meeting the demands of the education sector amidst broader socio-economic concerns.
