Daily mail employees reject Madison pension scheme, retire in Numbers

 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿพ52 key staff retire in protest against Madison insurance scheme

The Zambia Daily Mail has been rocked by a staff crisis after almost all senior staff have opted to leave the company to safeguard their pension benefits.

This follows a Board and Management decision to abandon the NAPSA pension scheme over an insurance scheme obtained from a private insurance company, Madison Insurance.

Zambia Daily Mail Management has phased out retirement conditions of service for both unionised and middle management staff resulting in almost all middle management staff opting to leave the company immediately.

The phasing out of retirement conditions of service take effect on 31st December.

This is to pave way for the implementation of the newly-introduced Madison Insurance Scheme.

On accrued terminal benefits as of 31st December, Management is expected to transfer employeesโ€™ terminal benefits to Madison Insurance Company over a period of 10 years.

Since the process started in 2018, the following have since left or given notice to leave.
