Government has offered a 10 percent salary increment to workers starting in April which has been rejected.
Speaking after the national joint negotiations council meeting in Harare Yesterday Apex Council Chairperson Mrs Cecelia Alexander said the 10 percent increment translates to a $41 increment for the lowest paid worker who is currently earning $414 inclusive of allowances.
Mrs Alexander said they want a minimum of $1,733.00 for the lowest paid worker which they say will suit the current cost of living being incurred by workers.
Meanwhile the workers will convene a meeting in Harare
today to discuss the way forward.
