Mavima involved in a shady $400 000 Borrowdale real estate deal

Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Paul Mavima said that Government officials and civil servants’ representatives will meet on Friday, 07 July to discuss conditions of service for civil servants.

In a statement, Mavima said the Government is committed to improving the welfare of its employees. He said:

Following my announcement on 25 June 2023 that Government will effect a new remuneration package that includes an increment in the United States dollar component for civil servants to cushion them from the rising cost of living.

I am pleased to announce that Government and worker representatives will convene the National Joint Negotiating Council meeting on 07 July 2023 to discuss conditions of service for civil servants.

Government remains committed to improving the welfare of its employees and will continue to engage workers’ representatives in a bid to improve conditions of service for civil servants.

Last Thursday, the Zimbabwe Confederation of Public Sector Union (ZCPSTU) wrote to Mavima requesting an urgent meeting to review civil servants’ salaries.

ZCPSTU, formerly the Civil Service Apex Council, is the union representing civil servants.

In the letter, ZCPSTU expressed disappointment over what it termed “unreasonable delays” by the Government to convene a salary review meeting.

ZCPSTU said recent media reports of Government officials promising salary negotiations had raised workers’ hopes, yet the promises have not been fulfilled.

Mavima denied reports that the Government was in the process of drawing a package that will see employees earn a minimum of US$400 when allowances are factored in.
