Re : Ultimatum To Review Salaries, On Call Allowances and Working Conditions For JRMOS, SRMOS, SHOS and Registrars

This notice serves to inform your office that the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association is deeply concerned by the current salaries, allowances and working conditions for doctors working in the above mentioned government hospitals. After nationwide consultations with our membership over the last few months we resolved that the Association shall approach government through your office

- To seek an upward review of the basic salary doctors are receiving from 282 dollars per month to a minimum of $ 1200 per month exclusive of allowances
- The government must not charge all doctors residing in government provided accommodation the current exorbitant rates of $250.00
- These rates should be reduced to $37 for bachelor’s flats and $45 for one bed roomed flats
- We also resolved that government must pay at least 1.45 x hourly rate as on call allowances
- The government must also reinstate the duty free facility where doctors can import vehicles without paying duty
- Lastly the government must urgently come up with a comprehensive response to the possibility of an Ebola outbreak that shall protect doctors, other health workers and their families from the deadly disease

We expect your response to the above mentioned issues in writing within 14 days and failure of which will lead to a nationwide strike by our members.
