Mansa workers not paid for last 10 months

Workers at Mansa Municipal Council in Luapula Province Tuesday held a sitting in protest to demand for payment of their salary arrears.

The workers were at their offices as early as 8:30 hours demanding to be addressed by Council officials.

A check by ZANIS found the workers who were in small number of less than 100 standing in front of the Council premises.

The workers representative were also found having a meeting in one of the Council offices.

And speaking in an interview, Zambia Union of Local Authority Workers (ZULAWU) Mansa Branch Secretary General, Peter Kaunda said the workers were protesting against non-payment of their salaries.

Mr Kaunda said unionised workers at the local authority have not received their salaries for 10 months now.

He added that their counterparts from the hotel industry have also gone without salaries for 24 months..

Efforts to get a comment from the Town Clerk and the Council Chairman proved futile as they could not be reached by Press time.
