Government Workers To Embark On 2-day Strike Following Elapse Of 14-day Strike Notice

Government Workers To Embark On 2-day Strike Following Elapse Of 14-day Strike Notice

Government workers have announced that they will embark on a 2-day strike on 27 July 2022 following the elapse of their 14-day strike notice. In a statement previously published by Pindula News, workers demanded a review of their salaries threatening to embark on industrial action if the employer fails or neglects to address their grievances. They wanted United States dollar-denominated salaries as was the case prior to October 2018. The government says it is incapacitated to pay them all in USD. Pindula News presents the workers’ statement:

Organisers and union leaders need to be more organised and clear to the workers on what should be done on the industrial action day. For example, who should or which sectors of workers shud participate? How shud they participate ie is it staying at home or c oming to march in towns? After the strikes, what are our intended goals? What are we going to do after the 2 day strikes? etc etc. Otherwise these strikes and threats will end up as loughing stalks for the regime.

This work stoppage is long over due. I also feel that 2 days is not enough. I feel that 5 days would have sufficed.

In the past only teachers and nurses participated meaningfully in work stoppages. The rest of civil servants have not been actively participating meaningfully.

I do agree with @Nehoreka that it is not clear whether it is a stay away stoppage or street March stoppage. But on who should participate, it is simply all civil servants, Jack and Jill included.

[ GO JACK AND JILL GO ]

[ KANA MAKONIWA REGAI CHAMISA APINDE APA ]

[VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE]

Yours sincerely
