Govt threatens to deal with striking judiciary staff

47

Malawi government through the ministry of finance has urged striking Judiciary support staff to go back to work arguing their strike is illegal.

According to the office of the treasury in the ministry of finance, the work contract for the support staff has no provision of house allowances as such the workers’ demands cannot be granted.

Judicial strike

Judiciary support staff strike still on.

According to a letter to the workers with reference number FIN/BD/2/2/22/070 signed by secretary to the treasury Ben Botolo, government is to continue discussions with the workers when they return to work.

“We believe that this strike is illegal and unless the employees return to work immediately government shall be compelled to take such action within the law as would be available to every employer,” reads part of the letter made available to Malawi24.

Leader for the striking workers is on record to have said that the workers are to return to work only after government meets their demands.

Judiciary support staff downed tools to force government pay them house allowances.

  1. In developed countries strikes are last option.when people strike employers withhold their salary and are paid by Labour unions that’s y there is sanity.. in Malawi workers can strike for six months and still get paid ..we missed on that one

  2. This is very bad strike.Judiciary staff remember noone didn’t entice u to bring an Application letter to the Judiciary.Yes u got an opportunity to be employed and u swore that u will be serving people in aright manner not just people but people who are looking for justice.Think of someone is in prison suspected of robbery,rape,killing but no justice yet is waiting for ur fucken strike.This is Malawi we r all not working in government we r working in company where we don’t receive any of house allowance but we use the same salary paying rent,school fees and buying domestic staff but we use budget.Pliz for the sake of brothers and sisters who are looking for judgement go back to work pliz

  3. IF on their contract there was an agreement that housing allowance will be inclusive then I don’t see why the govt seems adamant on the issue*****pay them
