GTUYTP PRESENTS POSITION PAPER TO GTU-NEC

After a failed attempt to introduce a new pay and grading structure for civil servants by the government, and a subsequent 30% salary increment for all civil servants (which was criticized at many quarters, including within the teacher family), The Gambia Teachers’ Union Young Teachers Platform-GTUYTP an organ of the GTU representing the youth constituent of the Union conducted a meeting to discuss possibilities of creating avenues to advocate for a better pay and living standards for teachers.

At the conclusion of the meeting, a position paper was drawn to be submitted to the National Executive Committee-GTU.

The GTUYTP, on August 24, 2022, presented the position paper to the National Executive Committee-NEC of the GTU.

The position paper is a call for the NEC to institute an advocacy with Government for the payment of allowances and or adjustment on the payable allowances to teachers.
The call for the advocacy with Government is necessitated by the fact that teachers in the country are not sufficiently remunerated compared to the very challenging conditions they perform their roles, which could be a recipe for poor performance.

Teachers in the country perform their roles under very challenging conditions. Many of them especially in rural Gambia, sleep in stores and in least suitable and friendly environments. This narrative has to change.

The Government must therefore recognize the crucial role of teachers in the development of the country. As such, government must take full responsibility to remunerate teachers accordingly.

The GTUYTP in the position paper has indicated to the NEC to pursue with government the payment of the following allowances to teachers, Professional Allowance, Risk Allowance, WAEC Invigilation Allowance, Responsibility Allowance and a review of the Retention and Graduate Teacher Allowances respectively.

Accordingly, the National Executive Committee received the position paper during a NEC meeting held at the GTU Secretariat. A committee has since been established to review the position paper and do the needful.

Additionally, the position paper indicates that the National Executive has until 15th September 2022, to update the submitters of the position paper on the progress of engagement(s) with government.
ENDS!

GTUYTP STATEMENT ON THE OCCASION OF INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY (IYD)

Today, August 12, 2022 the world observes International Youth Day. The day is set aside to raise awareness of any issues that may be facing the world’s youth to celebrate their achievements.

This year’s theme: Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a world for all ages, harps on the need to collaborate to foster successful and equitable intergenerational relations and partnerships to ensure no one is left behind. While intergenerational solidarity and concern for the future generations is being called for in tackling global issues, many challenges remain.

Ageism according to the United Nations, continues to present a significant-yet, not sufficiently-discussed challenge to fostering collaboration and solidarity across age groups. Ageism has bearings on both older and younger populations around the world at large, The Gambia as a country and the Teaching Fraternity, in particular. It often times traverses with other forms of bias and impacts people in ways that prevent them to reach their full potential and contribute meaningfully to society.

Reports on ageism indicate many data gaps that exist with regards to ageism against youth. Young people continue to report age-related barriers in various spheres of their lives such as employment, promotion, and political participation amongst others.
Therefore, fostering intergenerational solidarity between generations is more than necessary to ensure an inclusive and sustainable recovery.

We at the GTUYTP recognize efforts to promote and strengthen the youth voice in matters of the Union, the Sector and the Country at large. We recognize and thumbs up efforts to build the capacity of the youthful membership of the GTU. We must build on the gains registered and create more avenues to ensure that the youth voice is reflected in the programmes and policy designs of the Union.
We equally celebrate the gallantry efforts of young teachers and education support personnel across the country.

Evidently, the future of the Education Sector and the development of the country as well as the advancement of the Union largely rest on our collective contribution as young people of the profession and the Economy.

As we observe IYD 2022, we must also challenge Government to prioritize the development of young people in the teaching profession. This should include but not be limited to providing scholarships for them to develop themselves academically, reviewing policies to ensure deserving young teachers are promoted to different cadres in the Establishment as well as improving their socioeconomic welfare through incentives and allowances that commensurate the very challenging conditions they perform their duties.

The situation created by the introduction of a proposed new pay scale for Civil Servants is a matter of concern.

We've listened to divergent views from the teacher family. It is thus important that the Gambia Teachers' Union constructively review the report to gather facts on and about the issues raised by her membership.

The voice of every member matters!
