ZUFIAW urges Government to end casualization

Economy ZUFIAW urges Government to end casualization

Zambia Union of Finance and Allied Workers (ZUFIAW) has said it will be difficult for Zambia to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in 2015 on achieving full employment and decent work because of casualization of labour.

ZUFIAW President Ackim Mweemba told ZANIS in an interview in Ndola yesterday that government should ensure that the issue of casualization is brought to an end if the country is to develop economically.

Mr. Mweemba noted that casualization in the country is rife and that if left unchecked it will continue to enslave the youths in the country.

Mr. Mweemba said government does not employ people on casual basis but wondered why it has allowed parastatal companies to employ people on casual basis.

He alleged that executive officials in parastatal companies have over stayed and that they were in a habit of perpetuating the vice of casualization in these companies.

He said the year 2015 is a good year as the country will look at the MDGs that have been attained and to forge a way forward where it has not done well.
