Severance package / early retirement for teachers?
The Director General of the Department of Basic Education (DBE) has apparently made comments about a severance package to allow surplus educators to exit the profession.
Please note that this matter has not been tabled in the ELRC for negotiation or discussed with the teacher unions in any other forum.
Members should not contact the Union for details of the â€œproposedâ€ severance package â€“ there are no details available.
NAPTOSA will keep members informed of developments - if any.
It must also be borne in mind that an exodus of experienced educators is not in the best interest of the profession.
