Aggrieved public sector workers hit the streets tomorrow in protest against the 4% salary increment.

On Wednesday over 30,000 Aggrieved Public Sector Workers will hit the street to protest the 4 % percent salary adjustment instead of the 25% percent increment proposed.

The group calling itself coalition against trade union congress (TUC) and organized Labour have accused the mother bodies of been in bed with the ruling government, there-by failing to negotiate better conditions of service for their members.

The coalition bemoans the failure of Government to heed their demand for their duly deserved 25% increment in wages.

The leaders of the aggrieved workers, argue that “there is no equity and fairness in the recent salary increment between them and the article 71 office holders.

Where others receive a 79% percent increase and the tax payers see only a 4% percent surge. The low percentage% of the increment, according to government, is to allow for the employment of over one million workers into the public service.

But the, agitated workers disagree and are resolute to hit the streets to express their displeasure.

The group have already petitioned Parliament, but yielded no 

Positive response pushing them to embark on the protest march towards a struggle as they call it. And they have vowed not to stop until they see some their demands met.

The group says it has notified the police and made all necessary arrangement towards the event happening tomorrow in the national capital.  The group demands fairness to justify the all the additional tax introduced which is also a burden on the workers.
