Civil ser­vants seek bonus clar­ity

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

CIVIL Ser­vants have de­manded to meet the Min­is­ter of Pub­lic Service, Labour and So­cial Wel­fare, Cde Sekai Nzenza, Min­istry of Fi­nance and Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Pro­fes­sor Mthuli Ncube and the Civil Service Com­mis­sion to dis­cuss a pos­si­ble re­view of their salaries and get a clar­ity on this year’s bonus.

In an in­ter­view yes­ter­day, Apex Coun­cil chair­per­son Mrs Ce­cilia Alexan­der said the cost of liv­ing has eroded the 17,5 per­cent they ne­go­ti­ated this year hence a need for an­other re­view. The Gov­ern­ment awarded the civil ser­vants a 17,5 per­cent salary in­crease in July.

Mrs Alexan­der added that civil ser­vants were also keen to get the Gov­ern­ment to an­nounce a po­si­tion on bonus. Tra­di­tion­ally civil ser­vants start re­ceiv­ing their bonuses in Novem­ber.

“We also ex­pect Gov­ern­ment to give us in­for­ma­tion as re­gards to our bonus for 2018. Any­thing which af­fects con­di­tions of service should be a prod­uct of en­gage­ment.”
