Civil Servants Receive Cushioning This Friday

The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development has assured civil servants that their cushioning allowances will be paid by Friday this week.

Apex Council president Cecilia Alexander made consultations with the government over the release of the allowances and was assured that the payments will be made soon.

The government last week offered civil servants a 50% cushioning allowance for the month of July and salary increments of ZW$116 from August to December, but representatives of the workers rejected the proposal and immediately declared incapacitation.

The offer was made during a meeting of the National Joint Negotiating Council attended by representatives of government and the Apex Council.

“The government offered 50% of our total earnings as a cushion allowance for July only. From August to December civil servants will then get ZW$180 million translating to ZW$116 per individual.

“Through the mandate given by the membership, Apex Council rejected the offer as it could not even attempt to address the basic needs of the civil servants to necessitate duty execution,” Apex Council organising secretary Charles Chinosengwa said.

Civil servants say they are now incapacitated as transport and other costs keeps spiralling.
