Sadtu to intensify anti-Motshekga campaign
Sadtu has vowed to intensify its campaign to force Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) says it will intensify its campaign to force Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga and her director general to resign.
On Monday, the union called on all teachers to embark on a go-slow.
The move was prompted by a decision by Motshekga to unilaterally withdraw from a bargaining agreement which sets out the salary and wage structure for exam markers.
Sadtu's Nomusa Cembi said, "We are not going to attend workshops which are organised by the department."
Motshekga has been under pressure following the Limpopo textbook saga.
In 2012, Limpopo schools were forced to go for months without textbooks after the department failed to deliver them.
Section 27 took the Ministry to court in a bid to force them to deliver the books.
It has also been reported that some Limpopo schools have yet not received textbooks for 2013.
Motshekga has refused to resign over the matter.
It is not yet clear whether Sadtu's go-slow has affected the first day of schooling.
