Teachers under their umbrella body, Uganda National Teachers Union (UNATU), have suspended their industrial action following a meeting with President Museveni in which he advised them to return to class

President Museveni advised Arts teachers to return to class and teach as the government is committed to handling their grievances.

While meeting the leadership of teachers from across the country, Museveni said that whereas Arts teachers insisted that government should use the available resources to improve their salaries across the board, it is not possible as it does not solve the salary issue.

Museveni says that they provided a position as government and pledged to competitively remunerate workers guided by a science-led strategy, something he says does not mean they have forgotten others.

He says that they are choosing to prioritize the few and others can come later as one of the ways to finish one problem at a time.

It is against this that he asked teachers to go back to class as the government has a strategy and no one should disrupt them.

Teachers later convened a small meeting to forge a way forward that resolved to suspend industrial action.
