Daily Sun: Salary: Delta NUT vows to sustain strike

In spite of assurances by the Delta State Education Commissioner, Dr. (Mrs.) Elizabeth Uvo- Gardner that the strike action by teachers in the state would soon be called off as government has commenced the desk payment of the teachers’ salaries which is a major point in the dispute, there are indications that the two-week-old strike action embarked upon by the teachers would not be called off.
This is coming on the heels of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) Delta State chapter vowing to sustain the strike until their February 2009 salary is paid.
