Govt Awards Civil Servants 20 Per Cent Salary Increase

Govt Awards Civil Servants 20 Per Cent Salary Increase

The Government has announced a 20 per cent salary increase backdated to 1 January 2022 for teachers and civil servants.

This comes a day after teachers boycotted classes across the country, demanding a pay rise.

The Government has also announced non-monetary benefits for teachers which include paying school fees for up to three biological children.

This, however, falls short of teachers’ demands. The educators have been pushing for the restoration of their pre-2018 salaries which were pegged at US$540 per month.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services on Tuesday evening read:

GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE CONDITIONS OF SERVICE FOR TEACHERS AND CIVIL SERVANTS

His Excellency President E.D. Mnangagwa, after being briefed on the appeal made by the Apex Council during negotiations in the National Joint Negotiating Council for a review of the Government’s offer on the improvement of remuneration and other conditions of service, has directed that specific measures be implemented forthwith as follows:

Monetary benefits:

1. A 20 per cent increase in the Zimbabwe Dollar salary component backdated to 1 January 2022 will be implemented across the board;

2. USD 100, per month in hard currency will be paid to every civil servant with effect from the 1st of March 2022. This will be done through the conversion of a corresponding Zimbabwe dollar salary amount into hard currency, bringing the foreign currency amount to USD175;

3. The introduction of an advancement award, which recognises seniority, for differentiation within the same grade to be implemented across the entire civil service sectorally.

Non-monetary benefits:

1. Payment of school fees for up to three biological children per teaching family, with an upper limit of ZWL20 000 per child per term, paid directly to the school;

2. Construction of 34 000 housing units (2 125 blocks of flats) over a five-year period as institutional accommodation including critical amenities, for teachers within the school premises.

3. Implementation of a housing loan guarantee scheme to facilitate homeownership by civil servants;

4. Provision of a transport facility to ferry teachers in both rural and urban areas;

5. Teachers to import vehicles duty-free but not to dispose of them before the expiry of three years

Government remains committed to continue improving the conditions of service for teachers and the entire civil service, as the economy improves.

*According to Mthuli Ncube*

Say you earn $30000 Rtgs

Add 20%

You get $36 000

*Subtract* the $75 at interbank rate
RTGS $120 : US $1

US $75 = RTGS $9 000

You remain with $27 000

Now *subtract* US$100 at interbank rate
RTGS $120 : US $1

US $100 = RTGS $12 000

*You remain* with
RTGS$15 000

Now, from this money
*Subtract*
NSSA/Pension
Nyaradzo
Zimta
PSMAS
And some have loans

There is no way one will earn above
RTGS $10 000

But
*General expenses needing bond*

Airtime - $2000
Data 10 Gig- $6500
ZESA -$4000
Rent -$2000

So in simple language
This guy just took a salary we had in January and just changed it to US$

If you rate it with the September 2021 black market rate which was
US$1 : RTGS $150

Thus
30000 ÷ 150
= US$200

In conclusion, Mthuli did not increase any salary
He just gave people their salary in US$

The day he decides to remove the covid allowance totally
We will remain with jus $100 as our salary

Question is:
Is this what the teachers desire or its jus another Mthuli Economics gymnastics on the teachers

YESTERDAY,8 FEBRUARY 2022, WAS THE DAY WHEN ZIMTA SHOWED ITS TRUE YESTERYEAR COLOURS WHEN IT WAS STILL NAMED [RATA], RHODESIA AFRICAN TEACHERS ASSOCIATION.

IT WAS THE ONLY TEACHERS UNION IN RHODESIA BECAUSE THERE WAS NO DEMOCRACY.

WITH THE COMING IN OF THE FIRST ZANU PF ADMINISTRATION TEACHERS UNIONS WERE DEMOCRATISED. RATA NOW ZIMTA TRIED TO THROTTLE THE DEMOCRATISATION OF THE TEACHERS UNIONISM, BUT FAILED.

THIS DEMOCRATISATION OF TEACHERS UNIONISM LED TO THE FORMATION OF ARTUZ, PTUZ AND OTHERS. THE OTHERS WHO ENTERED THE FRAY HAD GOOD IDEAS TO HELP TEACHERS TO BE PAID BETTER SALARIES.

RATA [ZIMTA] CONTINUED ITS SELLOUT STANCE UNTIL IT WAS COMPELLED TO TOW WITH OTHER UNIONS. BUT ONCE A SELLOUT ALWAYS A SELLOUT !!!!! ON 8 FEBRUARY 2022, ZIMTA WAS INVITED TO A SELLOUT MEETING WITH GOVERNMENT REPRESENTITIVES WHERE AFTER THE MEETING THEY WOULD COME OUT WITH BASKETS FULL OF CRUMPS.

THOSE OF US WHO WERE MEMBERS OF RATA [ZIMTA] AT ONE TIME OR THE OTHER, WERE NOT SURPRISED WHEN WE READ THAT ZIMTA HAD CLANDESTINELY ATTENDED A MEETING WITH GOVERNMENT REPRESENTITIVES.

WE HAVE TRUSTED MEN/WOMEN IN GOVERNMENT WHO ARE EMPLOYED TO FIND WEAK LINKAGES IN ORGANISATIONS WHICH DEAL WITH OUR GOVERNMENT. IN THE TEACHERS UNIONISM, ZIMTA WAS PICKED AS A WEAK LINK:HENCE THEIR ATTENDANCE OT THIS MEETING WITH GOVERNMENT.

I THANK THE FIRST ADMINISTRATION FOR BRINGING DEMOCRACY TO TEACHERS UNIONISM, BUT IT WOULD SEEM THE SECOND ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO CRUSH THAT DEMOCRATISATION AS TEACHERS ARE NOW BEING ARRESTED AND CHARGED FOR DEMANDING PAY RISE.

MOST TEACHERS IF NOT ALL ARE ANGRY WITH ZIMTA, ESPECIALLY ITS PRESIDENT, SIFISO NDLOVU WHO CRAWLED ON BENDED KNEES AND ARMS TO GOVERNMENT OFFICES FOR THESE UNSANCTIONED TALKS.

I AM CALLING THEM UNSANCTIONED TALKS BECAUSE THEY WERE OUTSIDE APEX COUNCIL MANDATE. I AWAIT TO HEAR WHAT APEX COUNCIL IS GOING TO DO WITH ZIMTA.

GOVERNMENT HAS DANGLED GOOD MONETARY NON MONETARY BENEFITS TO CIVIL SERVANTS. BUT IT IS NOT THESE BENEFITS TEACHERS WANT. THEY WAS A SALARY THEY CAN DEPEND ON WHEN THEY WANT TO HELP OTHER MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILIES.THEY CAN NOT HELP USING THOSE HOUSES.

[ MAY I THANK THE LISTENING PRESIDENT, THAT HE HAS DONE WELL BUT HE HAS FALLEN SHORT OF THE CIVIL SERVANTS EXPECTATIONS ]

YOURS FAITHFULLY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ]

An indirect admission of failure by the new dispensation.If back then they could afford to pay teachers $540,what happened.You tell us the economy is in the right trajectory.If it were that is if it ever was they should have talking of offering them anything above $541.People are no fools mind you.Of building flats and providing transport those are lies that can be seen by a naked eye.Nyaya dzeparally

Congratulations (to you) in advance for picking a username different from mine. For the avoidance of doubt, "Sponono" is already taken. I rest my case.
