The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority is embarking on a restructuring exercise that will see a number of posts becoming redundant and 1 700 workers losing their jobs. ZESA employees who spoke to The Financial Gazette said that the posts of artisan assistants, drivers and lead artisans will be phased out.
National Energy Workers Union of Zimbabwe (NEWUZ) secretary general, Thomas Masvingwe, who is representing the workers on the pending job cuts, confirmed the development and said that artisan assistants had been reduced from a ratio of two to one to the current one to one per every artisan.
However, ZESA Holdings public relations manager, Fullard Gwasira said that the company was not carrying out a restructuring exercise but said that they were conducting a redeployment exercise that will see staff being moved
to new areas which would have been identified.
