Civil Servants Rejects Govt’s 50% Once-off Increment In July – Report

According to, The Civil Service Apex Council last night rejected govt’s offer of a 50% once-off increment in July, to be replaced by a Z$36 million monthly cost of living adjustment from August to December 2019.

The workers insisted on the equivalent of US$475 per month for the least paid.

The value of civil servants’ salaries has gradually been eroded since the government introduced the bond note in 2016, and later devalued the same in 2019.

The average civil servant currently earns less than US$50 per month, a figure that is reported to be less than 10 per cent of what the average civil servant in South Africa earns.
