The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has called upon stakeholders to engage in a national social dialogue meant to address issues grounding Zimbabwe.
Speaking on Monday at the tripartite seminar on “promoting and reinforcing social dialogue in Zimbabwe”, ZCTU president Peter Mutasa said:
We therefore note as labour that national social dialogue is of extreme importance and has a strategic dimension in that deepening consultation between social partners builds consensus on broad issues. This includes currency options that should enable Zimbabwe to navigate this treacherous terrain and crises in a balanced and inclusive way that promotes social justice, fairness and equity.
Mutasa also said that a national dialogue was consistent with the national constitution and other international statutes the country has acceded to. He added:
Continued violation of rights enshrined in the Constitution, bickering, name-calling, animosity and polarisation will only serve to sink this country deeper into crisis and the abyss, further impoverishing the working people we represent. We therefore stand here as labour to re-affirm our commitment to the founding principles and values of social dialogue espoused in our frameworks negotiated in the TNF, and especially the Declaration of Intent and the Kadoma Declaration.
