Workers at Livingstone City Council will not go back to work until their demands are met by the government.
Zambia Union of Local Authority and Allied Workers Union-ZULAWU Livingstone Branch Vice Chairperson Kaluba Masese says workers will continue their strike until re-instated Town Clerk Dras Neves is removed.
And ZULAWU Chairman Geofrey Thole says the workers do not want Ms NEVES because of her dictatorial style of administration.
Mr. Thole says Ms Neves has not embraced everyone since her appointment as Town Clerk.
Efforts to get a comment from Ms Neves on Monday proved futile.
Meanwhile the Livingstone City Council on Monday called for another emergency full council meeting to discuss the way forward for Livingstone Town Clerk Dras Neves.
The council dismissed Ms Neves last week but its decision was overturned by Local Government Minister Brian Chituwo.
Livingstone Mayor Aggrey Njekwa says the council wants to follow the right procedure when dealing with Ms Neves issue, hence the need to call for another full council meeting.
Mr Njekwa told ZNBC news that the Council has adhered to the minister’s directive to put in place corrective measures regarding the fate of Ms Neves.
He said the Council has also availed Dr. Chituwo with the minutes of last council meeting which was held last Thursday.
Mr. Njekwa said the Council will deliberate effectively on the demands of the workers and make recommendations to the Local Government Service Commission.
