THE Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has written to the Labour Commissioner to seek Government’s intervention over The Post Newspaper’s alleged failure to pay workers for over four months.
This is according to a letter obtained by the Zambia Daily Mail dated August 20, 2015, addressed to the Labour Commissioner and authored by ZCTU deputy secretary-general Elaston Njovu.
Mr Njovu said ZCTU is seeking the Labour Commissioner’s intervention in this matter.
“We have received numerous anonymous calls alleging that workers at the Post newspaper have not been receiving their salaries for the past four months,” Mr Njovu said
He said ZCTU has an understanding with the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, which is empowered by the existing laws to address such issues with employees.
“We are, therefore, seeking your intervention in this matter,” he said.
Some employees at the Post Newspapers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that they have not been paid for over four months.
