The protest by Times of Zambia workers in Ndola which started last week over unpaid salaries and calls to remove the current Managing Director, Mr. Benson Ng’onga has entered day four.
The workers are demanding that their eight months’ salary arrears are paid and the anaging director removed for allegedly failing to manage the company which is currently under financial pressure.
the protests were necessitated after the company Managing Director, Mr. Ng’onga wrote to staff informing them the company has no money to pay them, a move that angered them.
And management has written suspension letters to all executive union members claiming that they incited the members to go on strike.
Meanwhile, a check at times of Zambia Ndola offices this morning by Phoenix News found workers seated outside waiting to be addressed by management.
And Deputy Copperbelt Permanent Secretary, Warren Mayando who visited the protesting workers condemned management for keeping them for months without a salary and promised to engage the Ministry of Information to see how best this issue can be resolved.
