Civil servants welcome offer

Unions representing civil servants have welcomed the decision by the Government to give civil servants a cost of living adjustment which will be paid this week.

Civil servants are expected to start receiving the additional pay out from Friday, while salary negotiations continue with Government demonstrating a commitment to improve the welfare of its workers.

Exact amounts to be paid out are yet to be made public, but in a statement, Public Service Commission (PSC) secretary Ambassador Jonathan Wutawunashe said the adjustment was aimed at cushioning workers pending finalisation of ongoing negotiations.

Zimbabwe Medical Association (Zima) national president Dr Francis Chiwora yesterday commended the Government for the move saying any top up was welcome and would make a difference.
