Civil servants demand meeting with govt
In a letter addressed to the National Joint Negotiating Council (NJNC), Apex Council chairperson Cecilia Alexander demanded an urgent meeting with the government.
The government yesterday said the salary issue was being handled through the Tripartite Negotiating Forum.
“The matter is being dealt with by the Tripartite Negotiating Forum. You can speak to the permanent secretary,” Labour ministry deputy minister Lovemore Matuke said.
The civil servants’ demand comes after prices have almost doubled in shops over the past few weeks.
