If you feel tired or don’t want to work for current salary structure, resign now — Gov’t tells striking workers

The Minister for Public Service, Muruli Mukasa has asked government workers dissatisfied with their current salaries to resign. He says they are at liberty to walk away if they feel the pay does not satisfy their needs despite increasing cost of living.

“If there are individuals who feel tired or don’t want to work for the current salary structure, they are free to walk away,”Muruli Mukasa stated.

Early this week, prosecutors started an indefinite sit down strike over payment, a move that came on the backdrop of health workers who had also threatened to strike over similar issues.

The Public Service Minister said that as directed by President Museveni , his ministry and the one for Finance have finalized with plans for the overhauling of the pay structure for government workers which he said would be done with by November.
