Judicial staff call off pay hike strike

1

After days of chatting during work hours in demand of a 27 percent salary hike, judiciary staff are to be in office from today.

Confirming on the local press, Judiciary spokesperson Mlenga Mvula said Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda has managed to reason with the workers’ leaders on their demands.

Mvula added that the workers have agreed to go back to work on Wednesday and that government is to meet their demands.

Mlenga Mvula: Confirmed the development.

But Mvula said the demands will not be implemented any time soon arguing that they require a lot of resources.

This means that the courts are now expected to start hearing cases from today, Wednesday December 7.

The Police have since lamented over the strike arguing that it has led to congestion in police cells.

The workers downed their tools starting Friday last week saying government has been failing to meet their demands from 2014.

Apart from the pay hike, the workers have been demanding house allowances arguing that they are part of their entitlement.
