Shamenda orders reinstatement of Union

Ndola, April 21, 2013, ZANIS—Government has ordered management at U-rest Form Limited in Ndola to reinstate the workers’ union with immediate effect.

Minister of Labour and Social Security Fackson Shamenda  gave the directive when he visited U-rest Form Company in Ndola yesterday.

Mr Shamenda said individual members cannot make a decision to stop contributing to the Union but that this should be agreed upon with the mother body of the workers representatives.

Mr Shamenda said government was interested in the productivity of companies so that enough revenue could be raised by the Zambia Revenue Authority .

The Labour minister said if companies failed to remit taxes to ZRA government would lose out on revenue hence the need to ensure that there is production in companies.
