MALAYSIA Nanban highlighted the National Union of the Teaching Profession’s concern over the non-payment of salaries to over 1,500 temporary teachers in Selangor for the past five months. 

Its secretary-general Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam said the union was sad that the Government had not paid the salaries and allowances of temporary teachers and contract teachers since January. 

He said nothing could justify the delay and urged the Government to view the matter seriously. 

Noting that those affected had chosen to become teachers not just for the sake of their careers but because of a love for teaching, he said such a negative situation would discourage people from joining the profession. 

“The teachers need money for their meals and transport, and many of them are married with children and have aged parents to support,” Siva was quoted as saying.
