…demand equal salary

Striking has been noted to be the only way employees can force employers to address concerns of workers, hence the salary hike demand by prison warders in Malawi witnessed them boycotting duties on Friday.

According to reports, the warders want equal salary with Malawi Police officers and Immigration department staff who have been moved to Grade M in Malawi government system.

Malawi prisonspThe warders are also demanding house and risk allowances arguing working in prison environment puts their lives at risk, as they are likely to have respiratory diseases.

Spokesperson for Malawi Prison Service Smart Maliro has acknowledged having some warders at Maula, Chichiri and Zomba prisons being on strike.

Maliro faulted the warders for not following procedures on their concerns arguing he was yet to receive official communication on the matter.

Civil servants in Malawi have also been on government’s neck demanding salary increment due to the rise of cost of living in the country.

University of Malawi lectures from Chancellor College (Chanco) are among public sector workers who have been demanding salary harmonisation from their employer following reports that College of Medicine (CoM) lectures get additional money for their services in public hospitals.

  2. If this is true then there is aproblem some where, first the issue itself it gives sense but to extent of strike whilst they belongs to millitaly forces its wrong, its mutiny, and the significant of what these prison warder do is that they are not qualify to be in the military entity. (In millitay discipline is paramount) lf indeed they are more like police, mdf, and immigration s officers. Secondly: let me advice these what u call prison warderly that: in millitary you have your code of conduct which guides you in everything! Have u follow them up? Or else mabwana anu ndiomwe anakutumani, but let me tell you at the end of that tunnel you have taken some of u will be in your villages doing nothing for your reasonable issue but poor decision. Remember! Code of conduct yanu yomwe ikupwetekani ndithu!!!!! Kukhala nyumba imodzi sikutanthaudza kuti nsima nonse mungadye mofanana ayi! Ingakhale konko kwanuko, ma const, ma sgt….etc simumakadya limodzi ndi ma officers ayi that what you calld discipline. Thats mutiny! Let me repeat that is mutiny! Finally mabwana ku prison tapangani ma proposal abwino kumeneko if indeed you care about your staffs, amalawi asaone phada akupangika apayu pliz! Pliz.
