Nurses Accuse Government Of "Shifting Goalposts" With Regards To Salaries

Nurses Accuse Government Of

Nurses in public health institutions are demanding an increase in their monthly salaries, saying what they are currently getting has been seriously eroded by inflation.

Speaking on the sidelines of the International nurses day commemorations, Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZINA) president Enock Dongo accused the government of shifting goalposts when it comes to salaries. Said Dongo:

We implore our employer to be sincere and dump the sickening penchant of shifting goalposts whenever engagements which revolve around remuneration are in motion.

We implore the incumbent national leadership to desist from populism for political mileage. It is fundamental that the national leadership walk the talk and fulfill their promises. We would like to urge all our members who include anesthetics, midwives, general nurses, psychiatric, nurses and even nurse aides to continue discharging their duties in a professional manner as we continue to thrive for excellence.

ZINA will continue to engage the employer through established platforms in our perpetual quest for better working conditions. We respect and cherish all our living and fallen heroes of this esteemed organisation who were persecuted, vilified, victimised and criticised for the noble work they did and waveringly continue to do for the good of the nurses.

Nurses are currently earning about ZW$19 000 per month which is less than US$100 on the black market and about US$110 as per this week’s RBZ forex auction exchange rate.

Dongo lamented over the migration of specialist health workers to either regional or European nations in search of greener pastures.

It is shameful for government to shift goalposts like what is happening now with the so called second administration. We now read everyday that the National Joint Nagotiating Committee is going to be held next week, but those meetings have always been postponed on several occasions. This government is not concerned about its workers plight.

Voting out this failed government is the only solution. Lets vote for change. CCC for real change.
