Zampost Threatens Striking Workers with Dismissal
The Zambia Postal Services (ZAMPOST) has threatened workers with disciplinary action if they do not report for work on Thursday following a sit-in protest.
Post Master General Brighton Ngoma has said the workers have not resumed work despite the directive on December 14, 2018 to go back to work.
Ngoma said in a circular that the strike action had cost management a lot of revenue and cannot be tolerated any longer.
Zampost workers have gone for five months without pay and have resorted to downing tools to press management pay them their dues.
“This circular serves to direct all members of staff to resume duty tomorrow 08:00 hours. Failure to comply with the aforesaid directive, management will be left with no option but to trigger the applicable provisions of the law against any member of staff opting to stay away from work,” reads the circular.
