BLOW TO EMPLOYED CATEGORY SRC TO HALT NEW SALARY INCREAMENT.

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has suspended plans to increase salaries for State officers, citing economic realities and budget constraints.

SRC Chairperson Lyn Mengich, in a statement on Wednesday, July 3, said the decision was meant to ensure fiscal sustainability.

“Therefore, in consultation with the National Treasury, SRC hereby freezes the upward review of salaries for all State officers, and will review the advice for all other public officers, taking into account the current realities of the economy and a reduced budget to ensure affordability and fiscal sustainability of the wage bill,” said Mengich.

“The SRC remains committed to managing public expenditure, especially concerning wages, as this decision aligns with our mandate to uphold affordability and fiscal responsibility.”

A Gazette Notice dated August 9, 2023, from the SRC stated that state officers were scheduled to receive salary and benefit increments starting July 1, 2024.

In the review, Cabinet Secretaries and Members of Parliament and Judges are among state officials who were set to highly benefit.
