Reports attributed to the Ministry of Finance that the effective date for implementation of new salaries for public service workers has been moved are false and just another scheme aimed at stressing workers and thereby affecting their productivity and capacity to deliver the promises of the Government to the people of Zambia.
During the media briefing on treasury and fiscal matters held last Sunday, the Minister of Finance was very categorical in his affirmation that the new salaries would be implemented NEXT MONTH IN SEPTEMBER.
At that occasion, the Minister praised all public service unions for the benevolence shown in agreeing that the salary increments be implemented in September, instead of the end of the first quarter in March. He also thanked the unions for their spirit of dialogue, understanding and focused leadership.
