The Minister for Labour and Social Welfare Dr Sekai Nzenza has approved a $12 wage increase for bricklayers, a development that will now see the lowest paid bricklayer earning $155 a month, up from $143.
This was revealed in a government Gazette printed last week.
Nzenza approved the collective bargaining agreement entered into between the National Employment Council for the Brickmaking and Clay Products Employers Association and Brickmaking and Clay Workers’ Union in December last year.
The notice reads as follows:
It is hereby notified that the Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare has approved the publication of the collective bargaining agreement.
Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has condemned that paltry increment as a joke.
