Zimbabwe magistrates strike on Monday

Zimbabwe Magistrates Strike On Monday

Harare, April 02, 2011 – Zimbabwe’s magistrates will on Monday finally 
embark on a countrywide strike action for an indefinite period to press for 
an increase in their salaries.

In a statement issued Friday, the Magistrates Association of Zimbabwe said 
its members were disheartened by the lack of commitment by the Ministry of 
Finance to approve a salary increase that had been suggested in January this 
year by their employer Judicial Service Commission.

“Our salary negotiations have reached a dead end. We exercised our elastic 
patience until it snapped. We are completely disappointed and disillusioned. 
The only choice that is left open to us is to withdraw our labour. There 
would be no magistrate’s court sitting throughout the country starting on 
Monday the 4th of April 2011 until all our demands are met,” read the 

“The capitalist approach of giving us a wage which is just enough to keep 
body and soul together will not pacify us. We demand a living wage and until 
that is done we will not return to work.”

Munacho Mutevedzi, secretary general of the magistrate’s trade union, 
confirmed magistrates were going on strike.

Zimbabwe’s magistrates are demanding monthly salaries of US$600 for trainee 
magistrates, US$1000 for junior magistrates, US$1500 for senior magistrates, 
US$1700 for provincial magistrates and US$2000 for senior provincial 

They also want a monthly US$2 500 for regional magistrates, US$3 000 for 
senior regional magistrates and deputy chief magistrates and US$3 300 for a 
chief magistrate.
