Zambia United Local Authorities Workers Union (ZALAWU) Branch Chairperson, Elias Kapata said all unionized workers have withdrawn labour.
He said it was disheartening to see workers not getting paid despite their commitment to duty.
Kapata said the newly created councils had no capacity to pay salaries due to lack of revenue sources, hence them depending on the local government equalization fund.
But Mushindamo Council secretary Pamela Zulu said the government had already disbursed money to the council for February salaries and workers would soon get their pay.
Zulu said that the union branch at the council has however vowed to continue with their go slow until the March salaries are paid in full.
