MANZINI – Some civil servants say as much as they would have been happy with more, they are glad that their unions signed the collective agreement.

Nompumelelo Mlotsa, 35, who is on Grade C 5 Notch 3, said based on her calculations, she would now earn E457.70 more per month. This means her once-off of one per cent will be E1 885.71. When calculating what she will earn this month as the award will be backdated to April 1. ‘2022, Mlotsa will get E5 089.59 more. The lowest paid teachers, who hold a Primary Teaching Diploma (PTD), are currently earning E5 486.97 per month and have an annual salary of E65 844.

Backdated

The PTD holders are currently paid on Grade B 2 Notch 1, and they will amass E164.61 extra per month and when backdated by the seven months, will equate to E1 152.27, while the once-off payment of one per cent will be E678.19. This means they will earn E7 317.43. Secretary General (SG) of the Swaziland Democratic Nurses Union (SWADNU) Mayibongwe Masangane, said their members wanted the money and they said it was fine given the financial challenges they were experiencing. This was also said by the SG of Swaziland National Association of Government Accounting Personnel (SNAGAP) Phumzile Masilela, who said their members were grateful for the three per cent. She said people did not care about the meagre difference as every cent counted in these hard times.
