CBU work stoppage illegal
Striking workers at the Copperbelt University have been advised to resume work because the work stoppage is illegal.
Education Permanent Secretary, Andrew Phiri says the workers’ demand for the removal of the Vice Chancellor is not negotiable because it does not form part of the terms and conditions of service for workers.
Mr Phiri said this in LUSAKA, Thursday.
He said if the workers have any grievances with their Vice Chancellor they should channel them to the management and the University council instead of resorting to work stoppage.
Mr Phiri said Management and the University council reserves the right to take appropriate measures against perpetrators of the illegal work stoppage.
Unionised workers at the Copperbelt University have withdrawn their labour in protest against their Vice chancellor, professor Mutale Musonda.
