NEW SALARY STRUCTURE: Museveni Minister Reveals When Government Will Review All Employees’ Salaries

During the heat of strikes for salary increment in the last quarter of the last financial year, one of the recommendations made was for government to establish a salary review commission to comprehensively look at salaries and their scales for all government employees with the view of harmonizing and weeding out pay disparities. 

Government has now started on the process of all putting in place a salary review commission whose recommendations, if implemented, would lead to a new salary structure for all public servants.

With government prioritizing only scientists (including science teachers) and senior UPDF officers on matters salary enhancement during the current (2022-2023) financial year, the Museveni administration hopes to handle all the demands for salary increment as have been made by several unions in the months leading to the end of the FY2021-2022.

Now according to Public Service Minister Muruli Mukasa, the process of establishing a Salaries Review Commission will be completed by the end of this calendar year.

This means that undertaking a review of salaries of government employees, which will be based on the Commission’s recommendations, could begin sometime in 2023.

This revelation, as made by Minister Muruli Mukasa as he appeared before the Human Rights Committee of Parliament on July 26, also means that public servants hoping for salary increment might have to wait until the salary review process is concluded before seeing an upward revision of salaries.

Meanwhile, Public Service Permanent Secretary Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwiire has revealed that government plans to increase arts teachers salaries to the tune of Shs4m per month in the year 2026. (Read Story Here).
