News:Government expected to pay $100 salary advance today

<vote /> Government is expected to pay civil servants $100 advance salary today despite resistance from unions representing the workers demanding their dues in full.

This comes as the Apex Council, a body that represents all civil servants unions, is also expected to make a final determination today on the way forward after rejecting Government’s offer.

Acting Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Supa Mandiwanzira confirmed that the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development was working on meeting its obligations,

“The Ministry of Finance is on it and very soon things will be back to normal. We appreciate the role that civil servants play in this country. We appreciate their understanding and Government is doing all it can to ensure that things get back to normal in the shortest period possible. Our workers play a significant role in keeping the wheels of Government moving and we respect that.”

Indications are that the Zimbabwe Teachers Association (Zimta), the largest teacher union in terms of membership, has resolved to go on a stay-away on July 5.
