Judicial and Allied Workers demand for salary increment instead of debt swap
Written by MillenniumEditor2 on July 27, 2021
The Judicial and Allied Workers Union of Zambia has demanded that government increases their salaries and pay outstanding emoluments so that they sort out their loan issues instead of doing the debt swap.
Union President Peter Mwale says with government owing about K70 million to 6000 judicial workers, the debt swap may not be sustainable because only 400 members owe government about K4 million.
Mr Mwale has questioned how the debt swap will be successful as the judiciary has only been able to pay workers in a gradual manner due to the slow pace at which the ministry of finance has been disbursing funds to the department.
