The circular, dated July 8 and addressed to all county governors, county secretaries and secretaries to the county public service board indicating the Commission’s recent activities aimed at slicing and/or abolishing some undeserved allowances paid to state and public officers.

β€œThe Salaries and Remuneration Commission conducted a job evaluation exercise in the public service. As part of its implementation, the SCRC has recommended a salary review for the county government employees at the executive. The review was to be implemented in four phases taking into consideration the overall affordability within a sustainable fiscal framework,” reads the circular in part.

The government has already implemented the first three phases of the salary review for county government employees at the executive in job groups A to S in July 2017, July 2018, and July 2019 respectively.

According to the Circular, SRC is now seeking to harmonize salaries for all civil servants and put an end to the regular industrial action occasioned by salary disparities.

During the first two phases of salary reviews, the Commission merged job groups A to F to ensure that the salary was within the statutory minimum wage.

Phase three affected job groups G to S and is set to end on July 1, 2020.
