The Employer and the five (5) recognised Unions affiliated to the Botswana Federation of Public Sector Unions (BOFEPUSU) met today, the 19th May 2011 to continue with salary negotiations, following an adjournment on the 18th May 2011.

During the meeting, Government re-submitted her unconditional offer of a 3% salary adjustment to be effected in September 2011, and implored employees to return to work. For their part, the Unions re-stated their demand of a package comprising 12% salary adjustment effective 1st April 2011; reinstatement of all dismissed employees; and setting aside of the no work no pay rule for employees on strike.

There was no agreement on the two positions, and parties agreed to engage as and when opportunities arise.
