The Government yesterday released the October pay dates for civil servants which will see members of the Zimbabwe National Army and Air Force of Zimbabwe receiving their dues tomorrow.
Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira said the health sector would get their salaries on October 25 while members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police and Correctional Services would be paid on October 28. “The education sector will be the next on the list and they will get their salaries on November 3,” she said.
“The rest of the civil service will be paid on November 8 and pensioners will follow on November 11. Grantaided institutions are the last to be paid on November 15.” She said the Government was doing all it could to ensure salaries were paid within the month worked.
At the moment, the revenue collections are not allowing such a situation but it is our hope that in the coming month things will be back to normal,” she said. “We will continue talking to the civil servants associations to keep them posted on what will be happening in Government.
Recently, we engaged them and it was a very successful workshop and we will continue negotiating and helping each other until the workers’ conditions of service improve.” The Government, two weeks ago held a threeday engagement with civil servants apprising them of their conditions of service and nonmonetary incentives.
