————-Kasama District Civil Servants Allied Workers Union of Zambia (CSAWUZ) Chairperson Kasao Moonga has charged that the revised retirement age is not welcome by the union.
Mr. Moonga said the union in the district is not in support of the decision to revise the retirement age from 55 to 65years for civil servants.
The chairperson said this in an interview with ZANIS in Kasama today.
He said Zambia’s life expectancy has reduced adding that workers need to be given a chance to enjoy and invest in their monies while they are still energetic.
The Chairperson said the decision to revised the retirement age was harsh adding that the union was not consulted.
Mr. Kasao urged government to reverse the decision saying retiring at 65 years will affect the output of civil servants in their duties.
