By ZBC Reporter

CIVIL service umbrella body, Apex Council negotiators are set to meet the government on Friday this week to get feedback on the position paper they presented.

This was said by Vice Secretary of the Council, Mr Gibson Mushangu after a meeting held in Harare today.

Mr Mushangu said the Apex Council notified government that most civil servants are failing to make it to work while price increases have eroded the value of employees’ salaries.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Mr Simon Masanga also confirmed that the meeting will be held on Friday this week after the budget is approved.
