Jeddah private schools may sue ministry over salary row
- Saudi Arabia: Thursday, February 14 - 2013 at 03:27
The committee of private schools for girls at Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry has said it will take the education ministry to the Court of Grievances if it does not open negotiations over its decision to force schools to pay teachers a minimum salary of SR5,000 or face severe penalties, Saudi Gazette has reported. The ministry had told private schools if its decision was not implemented within two weeks, the owner of each offending school would be fined SR5,000 per female teacher. "If the ministry continues this position we will go to the Court of Grievances. We are keen to implement decisions and royal decrees while the ministry persists on doing what it deems is right without looking at the other party," said committee chairman, Mohammed Yusuf. "Instead of being our supporter, the ministry has opted to be our enemy," Yusuf said.
