First tranch of back pay expected by October


The Cabinet has reportedly decided to pay millions owed in back pay to civil servants in two tranches.

The government committed to raise the resources required to meet the back pay of civil servants although the precise amounts have not yet been definitively determined.

“However, one-half is likely to be paid by October 31, 2018; and the other one-half before the end of 2018,” the government announced after Cabinet yesterday.

It said the calculations to each established worker, each non-established worker, each teacher and other individual members of several unions will have to be determined precisely.

“The money will be raised, the Cabinet is assured, to eliminate the back pay debt owed to government workers for varying periods of time, as agreed.”
