According to NewZimbabwe.com, this was revealed at a press briefing by APEX Council chairperson, Cecilia Alexander following a round of wage negotiations by government and its restless employees under the National Joint Negotiating Council (NJNC).
Civil servants renewed their demands for a wage review November last year while proposing that the least paid employee should get $1 733.Civil servants on Tuesday gave their employer the mandatory 14-day notice to embark on a massive strike action while insisting their current wages have been eroded by a recent wave of price increases.
They have been demanding their wages to be paid in US dollars but this was vehemently rejected by a cash-strapped government which says it does not generate its revenue in forex.
The lowest paid civil servant currently earns $414 and shall start receiving an additional $41 if government proceeds to implement the offer.
