ZCTU rejects government’s efforts to reform the Labour Act

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has rejected a government-sponsored draft of the Labour Act saying the government acted without consultation. The government is seeking reform the Labour Act through the Tripartite Negotiating Forum (TNF). The ZCTU is one of the parties of the TNF. The TNF consists of the government, employers and employees.

ZCTU president, Peter Mutasa said the union rejected the State sponsored draft because the government had not adequately consulted the other parties. Said Mutasa:

The rights that we won as workers in 1980 are now under threat. We are better off defending what we have. From our point of view, the first issue is that of processes. Tripartism and social dialogue means business, labour and government must all participate in key decisions

We agreed on the 13 principles, but … government and the ILO’s Harare office went on to appoint a consultant without our input. Our issue is not about the product it is about how the product came into being
