Workers have nothing to celebrate

THE Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (TUZ) said the May day commemoration is becoming an irrelevant event on its calender as they is nothing to celebrate due to poor remuneration and conditions of service.

Speaking ahead of the Workers Day celebrations, TUZ president Manuel Manyawo said it was disturbing to note that government has chosen to contine ignoring problems faced by civil servants "Most civil servants are not happy with government failure to address the issues concerning their salary and conditions of service, among other things," said Manyawo.

"It is disturbing to note that government has chosen to continue ignoring the problems faced by civil servants," he said “Zimbabwe is rated as one of the African countries with the highest literacy rate, but what we get from such contribution are continued promises which are never delivered,” said Manyawo.

The Chief Executive Officer for the Zimbabwe Teachers Association (ZIMTA), Sifiso Ndlovu said the spirit of celebration that used to characterise May Day commemorations is no more as employers are offering poor salaries and failing to satisfy workers’ demands.

“We have nothing to look forward to. We feel cheated and this day has become irrelevant to most Zimbabwean workers,” said Ndlovu.
