Civil servants have hinted that they will go ahead with their intended job action this week despite Finance Minister Mr Tendai Biti’s impending Mid-Term Fiscal Policy review statement.
Mr Biti is expected to tackle the issue of civil service salaries when he presents his Mid-Term Fiscal Policy statement this week.
“We are not waiting for the Mid-Term Policy to be announced,” she said.
“We have given the Government enough time and we do not expect them to run around at the last minute, so the decision that will be made at the meeting will take immediate effect despite the fact that the Finance Minister will be making his presentation later in the week.”
In their demands submitted to Government earlier this month, civil servants are demanding an all-inclusive salary of US$564 for the least paid worker and 15 percent of the basic salary as rural allowance.
