–The Agriculture Technical and Professional Staff Union of Zambia (ATPSUZ) Namwala Branch has thanked its members for participating in the Labour Day celebrations of 2013.
In a statement signed by Namwala Branch Secretary, Valentine Kilubi, the union thanked the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock for awarding deserving workers in different categories.
The statement said such a gesture should be commended because deserving workers needed to be awarded as shown at this year’s Labour Day celebrations, adding that this will go a long way in motivating ATPSUZ members and foster unity between the employees and the employers.
Meanwhile other departments in the district have appealed to government to fund the ministries in time so that they have Decent Labour Day celebrations.
The departments, who declined to be mentioned, told ZANIS in Namwala that government should fund them as it funds such activities in Lusaka and other provincial centres of Zambia.
