Amuru District teachers’ Savings and Credit Co-operative (SACCO) has passed a resolution to start compulsory deduction of teachers' salaries as a way of helping them save for retirement.
The resolution was reached during the second teachers' annual general meeting, held in Amuru district.
The chairperson of Amuru teachers’ SACCO, Fred Okot, said the meeting agreed to introduce compulsory saving for Amuru teachers on a monthly basis.
Okot said it will affect teachers of primary, secondary and tertiary institutions.
He said the teachers will be sensitized on the issue, which will kick off in January next year.
The Amuru district inspector of schools, Christopher Ocan, said the attitude of teachers toward saving is still very low. He praised the teachers for their decision.
