Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka told teachers to take their request to their union so that it could collectively formu­late a proposal to Government for future consideration.

Mr Rabuka’s response was after numerous concerns were raised by teachers on Thursday on the margins of his welcoming ceremo­ny by the Fiji Teachers of Confed­eration.

The concerns were:

  • Amend the allowance per year for teacher transferred to remote/rural areas. Secondary school teacher, Vunise Taufa, requested this amount to be revised to a term as the cost of living was high;
  • Differences in salaries paid to newly-graduates and ex­perienced teachers on the field were also highlighted;
  • Repatriation of teachers who died on duty in the rural areas.

With regards to the adjustments in allowance, Mr Rabuka encour­aged the teachers to consult with their union.
