Par­lia­ment, union agree on pay hike

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - NEWS -

PAR­LIA­MENT’S management and the Na­tional Education, Health and Al­lied Work­ers’ Union (Ne­hawu) have reached an agree­ment on salary in­creases for the 2017/18 fi­nan­cial year.

“The salary in­crease of 7.5% takes ef­fect ret­ro­spec­tively from April 1, 2017, and cov­ers all em­ploy­ees in the bar­gain­ing unit,” they said yes­ter­day.

The two par­ties had agreed to the 7.5% in­crease as the best po­si­tion, given the un­favourable eco­nomic cli­mate and bud­get cuts by the Trea­sury.

There was also agree­ment to work to­gether to build sound labour re­la­tions and to ad­dress in­sti­tu­tional prob­lems, in­clud­ing the un­der-fund­ing of Par­lia­ment. – ANA
