Civil servants this morning finally agreed to take the improved salary offered by their paymaster at the JNNC workshop in Vic Falls ZBC news reports. Speaking at the sidelines of the workshop, Public Service Minister Paul Mavima said:
We are so excited that the parties have finally managed to reach an agreement and resolved all the sticking issues. The nation is now assured of continued service delivery and we would like to make it clear that we will continue to improve the condition of service for the workers.
The negotiations had been going on for close to a month and the civil servants had rejected both offers offered by the government. It is still not clear if the government offered the civil servants more money or they are going to honour their second offer which will see civil servants earning between ZWL$2200 and $3500
