Government had been ordered to show cause why an order given two weeks ago in favour of BOFEPUSU freezing the increment, should not be made final.

Ruhukya, who said he was unimpressed with government’s conduct, postponed the case to allow BOFEPUSU an opportunity to respond to government papers.

he held that the unilateral decision by government to award a three percent increase to the public service amounted to bargaining in bad faith.

The judgment was the interim order returnable to court yesterday and government was to show cause why the order could not be made final.
