Govt Offers 19% Salary Increase, Civil Servants Say Offer Will Not Address Incapacitation

Government has tabled its revised offer to civil servants in a meeting held under the National Joint Negotiating Council (NJNC).

Last week Government and civil servants failed to reach an agreement when the workers rejected a 10 percent salary review prompting government to increase its offer by a further 9 percent. Apex Council through its chairperson Mrs Cecilia Alexander said it will seek consultation from its members concerning the latest offer. She however said the offer falls short from what they expected. Said Alexander:

We appreciate the gesture but it will not address our problem of incapacitation, government today brought a revised offer, in our view as negotiators it falls far short. Meanwhile, we will consult our constituency which will give us direction.

The Apex Council’s deputy chairperson Mr Thomas Muzondo also thanked President Mnangagwa for availing a cushioning allowance. Last week President Emmerson Mnangagwa directed Treasury to pay civil servants a cushioning allowance of between 22.7 percent for the lowest paid worker and 5 percent for the highest paid employee.
