ZCTU’S RESPONSE TO THE SO CALLED INDEFINATE STRIKE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A TRANSITIONAL AUTHOURIT

PRESS RELEASE
  
RE: ZCTU'S RESPONSE TO THE SO CALLED INDEFINATE STRIKE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A TRANSITIONAL AUTHOURITY

We would like to correct a story that has been appearing on online news, and in particular, Zimonline alleging that the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has called for an indefinite strike by worker

The ZCTU wants to put it on record that it has NOT penciled any action for Tuesday 11 November 2008 and has never issued statements to that effect.

Although it is ZCTU’s position that only a Transitional Authority can help solve the country’s current political impasse, it has not resolved to take action to effect same.

As a mass driven organisation, the ZCTU can only take action after it has consulted its membership and has been given the go ahead by the General Council, the highest decision making body, to embark on such action. The ZCTU general council has not met to make a decision on the date and type of action to take. When the ZCTU decides to take any action workers will have been consulted through the structures and not just through the Press.
