The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has urged the government to set up a salary review commission to solve stand-offs with public servants over pay.
FDC Deputy Secretary General, Harold Kaija while addressing journalists on Monday said that this board should be tasked with harmonising salaries across the country.
The salary review commission, if set up, would consider each profession and determine the salaries. We believe that this would reduce the pressure on Museveni who is the only one who decides for everyone…,” Kaija said.
Kaija said that if set up, the board will also help address the demand of salary increments through industrial action, as every player would know where to address their grievances.
“The board should be able to consider the profession, cost of living, standard of living among other things to come up with a uniform salary.. this will solve a lot of problems,” Kaija added.
