Zimbabwe Civil Servants Reject Govt Pay Rise - Union
The government has offered its workers 180 million Zimbabwe dollars (U.S.$21 million) additional pay for July to December, which unions described as inadequate in the face of soaring inflation. The amount, to be shared by 309,000 civil servants, would see each worker receiving only U.S. $11.28 extra a month, Thomas Muzondo, the deputy chairman of public sector union Apex Council, said after a meeting with government negotiators.
