KCM Workers Get K1,000 Pay Rise

By Tinkerbel Mwila.

Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) has awarded a K1,000 standalone pay rise to its employees that will come in form of an allowance.

Disclosing the development to Phoenix News, National Union of Miners and Allied Workers (NUMAW) Treasurer, Saul Simujika disclosed that the Union has concluded negotiations with KCM under liquidation and is satisfied with the outcome.

Mr. Simujika has since urged other mining companies to emulate the gesture shown by the struggling KCM mine who have awarded a reasonable remuneration to its miners.

He says the signing of the agreement will be done this Friday 17th January, 2020.

    This means that their union is working.We have unions which are toothless!Their interest is to chew worker’s money.Imagine,guards getting K836.00,and you say there is a union?Rubbish!And where is the labour minister?Failing even to buy ka boxer costing k10.00!Noooo!when the bush is on fire,grasshoppers have no option but to bid each other farewell.If you know,you know.Tuzaona!

    Oh yes this is better than getting nothing . I hope the union has looked into tax. Because if it will be taxed the it is just going work for its purpose . if it be subjected to tax it is better it goes to ones salary as an increament across the board .

    The ministry should make a follow up to all big companies like MOPANI, KCM and NFCA and make sure that all have done that to it’s employees rether than no increment or a situation where they say 6%when basic is as low as k1700
