Government processes employment applications by Essential Se...

Government has begun to urgently process applications for employment by essential services public officers, who were dismissed following their engagement in an illegal and unprotected strike action.

Already twenty-five (25) doctors and sixty-seven (67) nurses have submitted applications to the Ministry of Health.

This follows an undertaking by Government yesterday, to welcome striking public officers back at work, and to allow dismissed essential services officers to re-apply for employment. 

In addition to the offer of re-employment, Government has offered a 3% salary adjustment for the entire public service effective from September 1st 2011.

In a related development, Government has issued a reminder that assembly points have been designated for striking non-essential services public officers, in the interest of public order and safety, as well as the safety of striking officers themselves.

Government further advises public officers on strike to remain within gazette assembly points, to avoid any danger to themselves and to members of the public.

In another development the Botswana Police Service advises that the assembly point in Molepolole has been re-located from the Bus Rank, to the old Molepolole Stadium from tomorrow.  The Police say the move is intended to ensure increased public order and safety.
