The salary of cleaners of primary schools, currently at Rs 1,500, might be increased to Rs 8,303 next year.
Union activists argue the current salary is not adequate. They discussed the issue with the Minister of Finance, Vishnu Lutchmeenaraidoo.
Following the meeting, the spokesperson of the ‘Confédération des travailleurs du secteur privé’ (CTSP), Reeaz Chuttoo, said in a statement to DefiMedia.info that they convinced the ministry pertaining to the cleaners’ salary. He explained that the minister gave instructions to the Ministry of Employment to regulate the latter’s situation.
A report will be submitted by the Ministry of Employment so that the cleaners obtain their end-of-year bonus and for their salaries to be increased to Rs 8,303 by next January.
