Government Speaks On Bonuses And Salary Review For Civil Servants

Government Speaks On Bonuses And Salary Review For Civil Servants

The Minister for Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Professor Paul Mavima has said civil servants’ bonuses will be paid on time starting this November while negotiations for salary review are expected to resume soon.

In an interview with the Chronicle, he said he hoped the issue of reviewing civil servants’ salaries will be concluded before the end of the year. Mavima said:

Civil servants must rest assured that their 13th cheque is coming. Government will pay bonuses starting this month so there is no need to panic.

What needs to be attended to is the issue of salary review for civil servants and Government is seized with this issue. Right now a mandate is being sought from the Ministry of Finance to pay civil servants the bonuses while salary negotiations are expected to resume soon.

He said Government has given its negotiating team the green light to resume salary negotiations with civil servants’ representatives.

Since January Government has been making regular salary adjustments for its employees while pension payouts have also been adjusted to cushion pensioners. In July civil servants received a salary increase of between 45 and 50 per cent.

In April, the Government had made another increase of 25 per cent in addition to a host of non-monetary benefits.

Government workers have in recent years embarked on periodic protests demanding better salaries and improved working conditions.

I THANK THE MINISTER OF PUBLIC SERVICE, LABOUR AND SOCIAL WELFARE, PROFESSOR PAUL MAVIMA, FOR BRIEFING CIVIL SERVANTS AND PENSIONERS REGARDING THEIR BONUSES AND SALARY REVIEWS.

I AM A GOVERNMENT PENSIONER WHO HAPPENED TO HAVE WORKED FOR ONE YEAR IN ZIMBABWE/RHODESIA, YES, ZIMBABWE ONCE HAD A SURNAME !!!. [IAN DOUGLASS SMITH]. I THEN WORKED FOR 19 YEARS FOR THE FIRST ZANU PF ADMINISTRATION. I AM NOW ENJOYINH MY PENSION ALLOWANCES UNDER THE ZANU PF SECOND ADMINISTRATION.

THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN THE WAY THESE THREE ADMINISTRATIONS HANDLE THEIR WORKERS SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES. IAN DOUGLAS SMITH'S ADMINISTRATION AWARDED SAME INCREMENTS WHICH WERE ACROSS THE BOARD FOR CIVIL SERVANTS AND PENSIONERS. THEY REPEATED THIS PROCESS EACH TIME THEY CARRIED OUT THIS EXERCISE.

THE FIRST ZANU PF ADMINISTRATION PERFORMED ITS SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES FUNCTIONS IN THE SAME WAY IAN DOUGLAS SMITH'S ADMINISTRATION DID. THESE ADMINISTRATIONS DID NOT DO SELECTIVE INCREMENTS.

THE SECOND ZANU PF ADMINISTRATION SEEMS TO BE DOING IT DIFFERENTLY. EACH GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT WHICH GOES ON STRIKE OR THREATENS TO STRIKE IS GIVEN A SALARY INCREMENT TO COOL DOWN THEIR MINDS. IT HAPPENED TO NURSES AND DOCTORS FIRST AND THEN TO TEACHERS RECENTLY. [VAMWE VACHO MBABVU DZICHIRI NHETE KUTI NDIVAREVE].SUCH TYPE OF DEALINGS ENCOURAGES STRIKES.

PENSIONERS ARE AT A DISADVANTAGE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT STRIKE. THEY ARE PERSONS OF HIGH ESTEEM WHO HONORABLY SERVED IN GOVERNMENT AND RETIRED. SALARY INCREMENT AWARDED TO CIVIL SERVANTS OF 45 AND 50 PERCENT IN JULY WAS NOT AWARDED TO PENSIONERS. PENSIONERS LAST RECEIVED SALARY INCREMENT IN APRIL 2021.

I WANT TO THANK MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT FOR THEIR EFFORT. THIS ISSUE OF PENSIONERS ALLOWANCES WAS ONCE RAISED IN PARLIAMENT AND HONORABLE PROFESSOR PAUL MAVIMA REPLIED THAT GOVERNMENT TAKES PENSIONERS AS CIVIL SERVANTS AND WHEN CIVIL SERVANTS GET AN INCREMENT, PENSIONERS ALSO RECEIVE AN INCREMENT. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT PRICKED ME IN THE INNER MOST PART OF MY HEART TO HEAR A WHOLE PROFESSOR TELLING AN UNTRUTHFUL STATEMENT IN THE AUGUST HOUSE !!!!!

ONCE MORE I WANT TO THANK YOU HONORABLE MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT FOR REMEMBERING PENSIONERS. [TIRI KUNONGA SVOSVE NEMUROMO].

YOURS SINCERELY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
[THE BUSH LAWYER].
