Economy CSUZ not happy with four percent increment for public workers

The Civil Servants Union of Zambia (CSUZ) Mansa Branch has expressed sadness over the four percent salary increment offered to  civil servants by government.

CSUZ Mansa Vice District Chairman Stephen Sinkamba  told ZANIS in a press statement
in Mansa today that the increment did not equate to the sacrifice the public workers
underwent to fulfill the Highly Indebted Poor Countries(HIPC) initiative completion
point.

Mr. Sinkamba said it was sad that the  Ministry of Agriculture Permanent Secretary
Richard Chizyuka could witness the agreement as he had worked in the civil service
for a long time to know that  the offered incentive was not enough to motivate the
public service workers.

He said civil servants were instrumental to the development of the country hence the
needed for them to enjoy the benefits of  their hard work.

Mr. Sinkamba said the union had hoped  to have an increased financial package for
the public workers equivalent to two or more 25 kilograms(KG) bags of mealie-meal.

He further expressed displeasure that Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU)
President Leonard Hikaumba  witnessed the event  and  could not give full details
over the offer.

And Mr. Sinkamba has called on all stakeholders negotiating not to ignore housing
allowance  due to high rental costs currently obtaining in the country.
