The leadership of the various public sector workers’ unions was invited by the government side at the ministry of health conference room today Thursday 17th November 2022 for negotiations on 2023 base pay increments to kick start since the committee that was working on the 2023 National Daily Minimum Wages (NDMW) has been completed.
The various public sector workers union leaders proposed a 60% increment in base pay for the 2023 year.
According to the various public sector workers’ unions “due to the inflationary trends and the fact that 15% has been granted on National Daily Minimum Wages (NDMW). We humbly propose 60% increase on base pay should be considered”.
They further explained that a step increment of 1.7% of the single spine salary structure in 2010 should have moved to 2% in 2012 and their plea to adjust the annual increments of the 1.7% to 2% has fallen on deaf ears.
