Beitbridge Council Workers Strike Over COVID-19 Allowances

Workers at Beitbridge Municipality yesterday reportedly staged a 2-hour sit-in protest over the nonpayment of COVID-19 allowances, The Zimbabwe Daily reports.

According to the publication, the 50 workers who protested said they decided to protests as a way to seek an audience with their superiors since they could not yield any result otherwise. The workers are reportedly demanding that the council pay them their 3 months allowances of $75 per month.

The publication alleges that:

To show their displeasure, the workers parked their service vehicles at the Dulivhadzimu and Main town offices and did not report to their usual workplaces between 7 AM and 9 AM.

This forced the management led by the Director of Administration, Mr Sathulani Moyo, to convene an urgent crisis meeting to salvage the situation. The workers said they were getting a raw deal because they were meant to perform their duties without proper personal protective gear and uniforms.

This comes barely a week after Bulawayo City Council workers also downed their tools as they were protesting late salary payments and low wages.
