‘IndustriALL will fight victimisation of workers’

IndustriALL affiliates delegates at a meeting at ZEWU offices

The Deputy General Secretary of IndustriALL Fernando Lopes said the global union will never sit back and allow workers to be victimized by the employers.Giving an overall assessment of his visit to Zimbabwe, Lopes called on unions to unite to fight the same cause.

“The visit here was positive….we showed the government through the Energy Minister and ZESA chief executive officer that IndustriALL will fight for the victimization of workers.
As a global union, we will speak up when our members are shortchanged and l am optimistic that through solidarity we can solve all impediments as soon as possible……we will not remain quite until there are solutions,”said Lopes.
He added:
“Its painful to hear that some Zewu members and leadership were suspended without any salaries.This is clear victimization that is meant to break the morale and spirit of people…no one has the right to suspend a worker without any salary benefits.”

“I am grateful that seven unions affiliated to IndustriALL in this country have shown their solidarity with workers from ZESA who are being victimized…that spirit must continue,”said
