“President To Sign TNF Bill Tomorrow Which Ensures That There Are No Stay-Aways” – Govt Minister

Labour minister, Sekai Nzenza has told Senate that president Mnangagwa shall tomorrow sign the Tripartite Negotiating Forum Bill which will outlaw stay-aways or strikes before exhausting negotiation channels with government and other stakeholders.

Responding to a question by Senator Langton Chikukwa, who wanted to know how the government was dealing with threats on labour unrest by teachers, Nzenza said:

There is a new Bill that is going to be introduced soon known as the Tripartite Negotiation Forum Bill, which will assist government in ensuring that there are no stayaways before negotiations between government and its workers.

This Bill will be signed by the President on Wednesday, and it is a new initiative that was introduced that workers and government engage in negotiations and also with the Apex Council, and workers can no longer engage in stayaways before engaging the TNF stakeholders.

The ZCTU to have been advocating the signing of the bill into law. However, it remains unknown whether the latest move by the government to ban protests will impress the labour union.
