The Apex Council, the civil servants representative body on Friday requested the government to urgently convene a salaries negotiations meeting.
In a letter addressed to Dr Sekai Nzenza, the Minister of Labour and Social Welfare, Apex Council chairperson Cecilia Alexander said:
As the above matter refers, Apex Council hereby requests your August office to convene an urgent NJNC meeting on or before the 9th of October 2019 to map way forward on continuous escalating cost of living.
The council also wishes to bring to your attention that it maintains its demand of salaries payment be indexed to interbank rate basing on the salary scale of October 2018.
The call is made when workers including doctors have argued that the soaring inflation has over the months eroded their salaries to the extent that they are now incapacitated to perform their duties and responsibilities.
National Joint Negotiating Council (NJNC), which combines the workers and government, last met in July this year.
