Government Offer Civil Servants 97% Salary Increment

The government has offered civil servants a 97% salary increment after negotiation with them this afternoon, ZTN reports.

The civil servants rejected the offer according to Apex Council Chair Cecilia Alexander:

We have rejected government’s offer outright. It does not speak to the current economic climate as it does not take into consideration factors such as inflation. We still stand by our position that our salaries should be indexed to the interbank exchange rate.

Following the latest salary offer, the least paid civil servant will earn ZWL$2015 up from ZWL$1023. A decision on whether teachers will return to work next week for the first term will be made at their meeting on Monday.

It is still not clear if teachers will show up for duty on Tuesday. The civil servants are yet to communicate their next course of action.
