The Imo Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), on Sunday said the state government had implemented the Teachers Special Allowance (TSA) of 27.5 per cent of basic salary.
Mr Nathaniel Metu, the state Assistant Secretary of the union, who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Owerri on Sunday, said members of the union had no reason to go on strike over the allowance.
NAN recalls that teachers in some states of the federation had embarked on industrial action following the non-implementation of the TSA by their state governments.
Metu also said that the Imo Government had commenced payment of the new minimum wage approved for workers by the Federal Government.
He said the implementation of the TSA and the new minimum wage had contributed immensely to boosting the morale of teachers in the state.
