ZCTU says working conditions were better under the Smith regime

Posted by Tayana

Speaking at a workers forum meeting held in Harare last Friday, new ZCTU president, Peter Mutasa, lamented the sorry working conditions prevailing in the country, saying the situation was far much better under the racist Smith regime. Representatives of various workers unions all but agreed that working conditions under the Smith regime were far much better.

According to the ZCTU, more than 5 000 companies have shut down with thousands of workers losing their jobs in the last few years. The ZCTU says the situation was made worse by the 2015 July Constitutional Court ruling which permitted the axing of workers on three months’ notice.
