Zimbabwe Civil Service Strike in Fourth Week Without Negotiations in Progress


Civil servants now earning between $100 and $250 demand a base salary of $630, insisting that the government could afford the increase if it tapped the diamond revenues from the eastern Marange field

An ultimatum issued by striking Zimbabwean civil servants expired on Friday without a response from the government in the four-week-old industrial action.

Civil servants now earning between $100 and $250 are demanding a base salary of $630. They insist that the government could afford the increase if it tapped the revenues from Marange district diamonds.

Public Service Association Executive Secretary Emmanuel Tichareva told VOA Studio 7 reporter Patience Rusere that the Apex Council representing public employees will meet early next week to review the situation and strategize.
