VSAZ calls on members to calm
Lusaka, March 6, ZANIS —The Voluntary Separate Association of Zambia (VSAZ) has urged its members to be patient and cooperative as government dialogues with them to determine how much will be given for terminal benefits.
VSAZ recently wrote a letter to President Sata seeking him to address concerns regarding their terminal benefits.
President Sata has since called for a meeting at cabinet office to chat the way forward on the issue.
VSAZ General Secretary Syachoke Simemeza said the association will be doing reconciliations with government for three weeks to come up with correct figures which shall warrant their terminal benefits.
This is contained in a press statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today.
Mr Simemeza said the issue at hand is being resolved by government together with the VSAZ lawyers within an agreed time flame.
Mr Simemeza said the amount owed will be paid in consent order upon the calculations of the rightful figures to all the 3,523 ex civil servants who went on the Voluntary Separation Scheme and package in 1999.
