Govt Says Working On Civil Servants' Salary Adjustment

Govt Says Working On Civil Servants' Salary Adjustment

Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube said that the Government is currently engaged in negotiations with unions representing civil servants over a salary adjustment.

Ncube revealed this while responding to Mbizo MP Settlement Chikwinya (CCC) who had asked to know what the Government was doing to ensure civil servants are paid living wages.

In his question directed at Ncube during the question and answer session in the National Assembly on Wednesday, Chikwinya said:

In view of the dwindling levels of the quality of life where poverty is on the increase, is the government able to provide solutions with regard to the current economic challenges which we are facing in the country?

In his response, Ncube said the existing salary structure of US dollars and Zimbabwe dollars being used by the Government would continue. He said:

We have pursued largely a two-pronged strategy for salaries only, the monetary benefits. We have a ZWL component and we have a USD component.

We introduced the USD component in order to manage the inflationary pressures that civil servants are facing.

The first thing we did was to introduce the USD75 amount as part of the COVID-19 risk allowance measures and then we added USD100 per person.

As I speak, we are seized with discussions with the leaders of the civil service in terms of the union to agree on a new package.

We are working hard on it and will also be beneficiaries of those discussions.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Professional Nurses Union (ZPNU) has advised the Health Services Board that its members would go on strike next Monday next week citing “incapacitation”.

Who is fooling who, imported Mr Mthuli Ncube ? Which associations are you discussing with if nurses have threaten to go on strike next Monday and teachers have also insinuated that they will embark on a strike if 17 June 2022 passes without a solution to their salaries ? Mr Ncube must not speak as if he is speaking with people recently discharged from Ingutheni , Mental Health Hospital !!!!!
