Civil Servants Ask Govt For Salary Increase
In an interview with Sunday News, Apex Chairperson Cecilia Alexander confirmed that they have written a letter to the Minister Responsible For The Administration of the Public Service Simbarashe Mumbengegwi requesting for a meeting to discuss a possible salary review, among other conditions of service.
Alexander said they want Government to review their salaries in light of the price hikes and four-tier pricing system. Said Alexander:
The value of civil servants’ earnings has been eroded by the price hikes and the four-tier pricing system. We are therefore requesting the Government to restore the value of what we earn. Civil servants’ salaries should be cushioned somehow.Feedback
Sunday News is also in possession of a copy of a letter the Apex Council wrote to Mumbengegwi requesting he immediately addresses concerns raised by the Government workers. Apex Council also asked Mumbewngegwa to urgently attend to the pending issue of teachers vacation leave whichwas cancelled in January 2016. Part of the letter reads:
As we welcome you, we are having to ask you to put your shoulder on the wheel as there are weighty and urgent issues that have been waiting your appointment. The matters among others include; the rationalisation of the civil service and harmonisation of our labour environment. We wish to make exception of the need for Government to quickly attend to the school teachers leave whose settlement is long overdue. It is against this background that we request for a familiarisation meeting that should set us on a dialogue path on these and other matters.
