Delay by government to pay May salaries to civil servants may results into protests in Eastern Province.
Health Workers Union of Zambia Provincial Chairperson, Ortan Kaluba says that the workers will protest if government does not give convincing reasons as to why the salaries have delayed.
Mr. Kaluba told Breeze News this morning that according to law, the contract between workers and an employee is that a worker should be paid within 30 days.
He says that the union does not agree with Eastern Province Permanent Secretary, Chanda Kasolo that the last day for payment of salaries to civil servants in the country is at the end of the month.
Mr. Kaluba explained that 30 days can start at any day of the month because civil servants are paid on the 18th of every month.
He says that the union is worried over the delayed salaries because government has not given any explanation.
