Salary in­crease for civil ser­vants

The Manica Post - - Comment & Feedback -

GOV­ERN­MENT has of­fered civil ser­vants a 10 per­cent salary in­crease with ef­fect from July 1 and re­scinded its de­ci­sion to bar teach­ers from go­ing on va­ca­tion leave.

Teach­ers, who were short-changed by the va­ca­tion leave ban will be paid cash in lieu of the ac­crued days ef­fec­tive from July, but in a stag­gered man­ner.

In ad­di­tion, Gov­ern­ment has also re­vived man­power de­vel­op­ment ben­e­fits, a move which will see civil ser­vants go­ing on study leave us­ing their ac­crued va­ca­tion leave days.

The em­ployer also agreed to re­duce rentals on its houses to a fig­ure which is not more than the hous­ing al­lowances work­ers re­ceive. The de­vel­op­ment saw union lead­ers un­der the Ce­celia Alexander-led Apex Coun­cil rule out a planned strike by teach­ers, which was sup­posed to be­gin to­day.
