The PF ministry of information and broadcasting has called all the workers representatives at the PF controlled Times of Zambia to tell them off and warn them against going on work stoppage.
This comes in the wake of revelations by the Zambian Watchdog that Times of Zambia employees had a meeting and resolved to stay away from work.
Some union leaders said that soon after the Zambian Watchdog ran the story of the impending strike at Times of Zambia, the PS at the Ministry of information Amos Malupenga started making frantic efforts to call the ZUJ members who work for Times of Zambia.
Sources close to Malupenga and Times ZUJ officials confirmed that Malupenga personally called the union officials and warned them of instant loss of employment if they attempt to go on strike.
Workers at Times of Zambia have not been paid their salaries since April this year.
Workers have resolved to go on go-slow tomorrow to press government intervene in their plight of unpaid salaries for three months from April to July this year. People are wondering how they have been able to survive without salaries.
Some of the workers have been evicted from their houses for failure to play salaries while others use charcoal and candles because they are not able to pay for elecrticity. Others have no running water because the utility water companies have disconnected supply to their houses.
There is also a plan by Times of Zambia workers to see ailing dictator Michael Sata to explain to him how they are suffering.
