Zambia State Insurance Corporation (ZSIC) workers have been
awarded a K600, 000 salary increment across the board.
ZSIC Managing Director Ireen Muyenga says the collective agreement was reached within a short time.
Ms Muyenga was speaking during a signing ceremony between ZSIC and the Zambia Union mof Financial and Allied Workers (ZUFIAW) in Lusaka today.
She thanked the union leaders for partnering with management during the negotiations.
And speaking earlier, ZUFIAW President Cephas Mukuka urged other organisations to emulate ZSIC.
Mr Mukuka said negotiations should be done quickly in order to ensure productivity and profitability.
He appealed to members to work extra hard as competition was in all sectors.
