Information and Broadcasting Services Permanent Secretary, Bert Mushala, has urged Times Printpak Zambia Limited employees to follow the laid down procedure in resolving their grievances.

Mr Mushala advised management and employees to address their grievances to the board as agreed during meeting in Ndola recently.

He said Government is just a stakeholder like any other, adding that the board will then consult government and other stakeholder in Times Printpak Zambia Limited to find the way forward.

He stated that following the laid down procedure in any pressing issue is paramount in resolving grievances.

On April 7th, the Zambia Union of Journalists (ZUJ) called on the Government to bail out Times Printpak Zambia Limited and save the nearly 170 unionised workers from the current hardships.

Currently, the ZUJ draws its membership from the Zambia Daily Mail, the Zambia Printing Company and the Times Printpak Zambia Limited, the publisher of Times of Zambia and the Sunday Times of Zambia newspapers.

ZUJ President James Muyanwa, said the unionised employees at Times Printpak, the publisher of Times of Zambia and Sunday Times of Zambia newspapers have suffered long enough and deserve a bail-out package.
