Zimbabwe civil servants to go on strike if government fails to increase pay rise offer


Civil servants in Zimbabwe have given the government until Wednesday to improve on its salary offer of $300 million for the sector or face a mass strike.

Apex Council secretary David Dzatsunga told a press conference on Monday that the amount was insufficient and that should Harare not substantially increase it a job boycott would follow, Pindula News reported.

His warning came after a meeting earlier in the day by the National Joint Negotiations Council. The organisation is scheduled to hold another meeting concerning the same issue on Tuesday.

Dzatsunga accused certain elements of hijacking labour issues relating to civil servants for selfish interests.
