Teacher's union Natu in KwaZulu- Natal says it will meet with the provincial department of education today in a last-ditch effort to reclaim all outstanding monies owed to its members.

Union members are seeing red and have accused the department of docking 21 days off their salaries as opposed to only 14 during the strike in July.

Natu spokesman Musa Gumede said the department has docked the salaries of their members for 21 days, instead of 14.

"The department has failed to take into consideration the number of days the department took to make a decision to close down schools by asking principals at schools to use their discretion.

"Many teachers were on duty regardless of the strike."

He said it was imperative for the department to thoroughly investigate who was on duty and who was actively on strike, and for how many days, before deducting the money from all teachers.

Gumede said if there was no favourable outcome to the matter they would go to court.

Education spokesman Christie Naudé said various structures were in place to deal with this matter.
