Worker's lament over poor working conditions

...

As the nation celebrates Worker's Day today, workers unions have expressed displeasure over poor working conditions.

Since last year workers from different sectors have resorted to industrial job actions citing various grievances such as poor remuneration and working conditions which affect their performance.

In an interview with Capitalk FM news, President of the  Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions(ZCTU) Peter Mutasa said the challenges faced by workers had caused workers to lose their dignity and government has turned a blind eye to these challenges.

 National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations programs manager Nomaqhawe Gwere weighed in saying their organization is in solidarity with all workers this year to assist in resolving issues affecting the workers.

Capitalk FM news also spoke to secretary general of the Federation of the Zimbabwe Educators Manuel Moyo who said government had taken too long to address their concerns which negatively affects the welfare of all workers.

Meanwhile Minister of Labour and Social Welfare Petronella Kagonye yesterday acknowledged the workers' role in the advancement of the country and pledged that government is in constant review and alignment of labour laws to address the challenges.
