Govt to meet civil servants representatives over salaries
Published: 03 January 2012 (2023 Views)
Government will this week meet civil servants representatives to discuss the issue of salaries and conditions of service following threats of industrial action by government workers.

The meeting is set to be held on a date to be agreed upon this week with the main agenda being the issue of salaries.

Speaking in a telephone interview, civil servants Apex Council chairperson, Mrs Tendai Chikowore, said civil servants made their submissions to government on the 16th of December last year and are hoping to get a response in a meeting to be held this week.

She said government should make an offer which will pave way for negotiations and lead to a situation where a compromise can be reached.

She said the Apex Council also resolved that government should look at the salary grading system which she described as being in a shambles.

The Apex Council is also demanding that the lowest paid civil servant be above the poverty datum line.

The lowest paid civil servant currently takes home around US$250 per month following increments which were effected in July last year.
