Work Protest Continues At ZAMPOST

Unionised Zampost workers have continued their protest as they have gone another six months without salaries, some workers at the Kitwe Branch have narrated in an interview.
The Unionised workers, who chose to remain anonymous for fear of being victimised, complained that despite assurances that they would be paid soon, they had continued to work without salaries.

The Workers have stated that despite having engaged the higher offices who have also promised to sort out the matter, there seems to be no hope of getting salaries.

“We have gone for six months without salaries. Surely, how do these people expect us to survive? Instead of us putting in normal shifts and ensure improved service, the institution continues limping because we are not being motivated. You know too well how difficult things have become, how does one survive for this long without a salary?” one of the workers questioned.

The Workers have passionately appealed to management to consider even settling at least three months salary arrears to help them respond to their daily needs.

“We have continued to work because we are divided. When you decide to strike, you will find you are alone, others will continue to work, so it is very difficult. To avoid being dismissed, we continue to work and hope that things improve soon,” another worker said.

The trend of delayed salaries continues at Zampost, a move that has now resulted in poor delivery of services.

When contacted, Minister of Transport and Communications Mutotwe Kafwaya’s mobile phone went unanswered.

    The challenges the country is facing are common to all nations.Nobody should lie to you that they provide alternative policies that can magically turn the economy around.Mukweshaesha muleta nabakuti mukalelya iloba.

    The management at ZAMPOST need to re-engineer their business.Technology has outdated a number of functions the institution was surviving on like people receiving letters from the Post Office.
    With Offices spread all over the country,ZAMPOST should think of going into Printing and modernised Business Centre activities.It is high time Mnangement started thinking out of the Box.

    Let us learn see things positively and evaluate. Zampost should be disbanded or closed and be re branded into something else, honestly it’s not producing or contributing anything either economically or as in services at the moment, it’s failed parastatal. By the way what do workers do there everyday.
    Secondly, let’s be industrious and stop putting our every challenge and failures on Government. In the same place where people complained of drought and did not plant, lsaac planted and haversted. Thank you.
