It's Now Difficult To Justify Incapacitation - Trade Unionist

It's Now Difficult To Justify Incapacitation - Trade Unionist

The Secretary for the Public Sector Trade Unions Mr David Dzasunga has said there is no reason for civil servants to declare incapacitation.

He made the remarks in an interview with Zimpapers Television Network. He said:

We believe that these new measures will certainly make it difficult to justify incapacitation. With US$175, the RTGS component could amount to an extra US$100 and we are looking at US$375 for the lowest worker on the current obtaining parallel market rate. I believe that US$375 should be enough, it’s not good enough, it’s not the best, but it should be enough for someone to get to work.

He said they were in negotiations with the Government over the suspension of teachers. Dzasunga added:

We had a fall out on the Government side with the threat to punish teachers who didn’t travel to their workstation because of incapacitation.  They have genuine problems of incapacitation and the divide was too wide between the poverty line and their income.

Also speaking to ZTN, Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Paul Mavhima said the deadlock between teachers and the government affected learners.

He said the matter should not have spilt into the courts as the Government is “making frantic and very genuine efforts to improve the conditions of service of the workers.”

@JohnChifamba, your Math was correct however youb fogort to factor in the 20% on net RTGS earnings thus from your math it becomes 25200/240=105 then add 175+105=280 -(540) = -260USD for it toreach the 540 they want.

Yes ishoma but now a little above half asi tikazo ita factor in a few more benefits dzeFreeTransport, maSchool fees aya aka taurwa, then Gvt is now at atleast 70% of the demands if not 80%

but personaly i feel in as much as the Gvt has tried, ngavaise another effort. Esp paXul Fees apo ngavape munhu iri USD equivalent across the board MAKEKE

Someone doesnt know his maths here. $75+ $100 = $175 plus net rtgs balance of say $21000. The parallel rate is say $240 according to rbz governor. do 21000/240=$87
so $175 + 87= is surely not $375

l capacitation is still there because the teachers will get this money starting next month

Total incapacitation was there. And they needed it to be addressed. However its an own-goal since they will in the end just be given enough to go to work. SLAVE WAGE.

This is not a win win solution. The biggest loosers are the kids and parents(SHAME),

Coz the teachers will just report with very minimum will and effort.

I can predict the high COURT is going to reverse the suspension,teachers Have MADE A WRONG APPROACH HERE.I DONT KNOW WHY THEY OPT TO USE THE WORD INCAPACITATION,NOW IT WILL BE CLEAR THAT THEY ARE HIDING BEHIND THEIR FINGERS.CONSIDERING US$375 THOUGH IT IS NOT THE CUMULATIVE SALARY SOMEONE CAN NOT SAY I AM INCAPACITATED .IT SEEMS AS THEY USED A COWARD GESTURE ,THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO CLEARLY TELL THEIR EMPLOYER THAT WE WANT ACTUAL SALARY TO BE INCREASED FAILURE WE ARE TAKING INDUSTRIAL ACTION. WHY THEY ARE AFRAID OF DIRECT STRIKE WHEN THERE IS A CHAPTER IN THE CONSTITUTION CLEARLY SUPPORT LEGAL INDUSTRIAL ACTION OF EMPLOYEES,ALSO THEIR EMPLOYER MADE A RUSH JUSTIFICATION TO SUSPEND THAT IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR THE COURTS TO RULE IN FAVOUR OF THE EMPLOYER,EVEN THE EMPLOYER DID IT PURPOSELY KNOWING THAT IT WILL NOT LAST,WATCH OUT
