The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) is deeply concerned with the galloping inflation which was officially at 131.7% as at May 2022, the second highest inflation rate on the African continent. The high inflation has resulted in the skyrocketing prices of goods and services while salaries and wages remain suppressed, but it seems the government remains unfazed.
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) notes with serious concern the move by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to suspend striking workers for three months without pay for demanding a living wage.
What is more worrying is for a government that just wakes up and suspends workers without following due processes. The laws of this country are very clear and of all institutions, the Government ought to know better.
