Judiciary Workers Union says it cannot comment on worries that the workers risk facing consequences of the Labour Act, an amendment of 2021, which bars any employee from holding a strike more than three days.
The workers started their strike on Monday this week and the three-day period elapsed yesterday. This raised questions on what would follow next.
But Union’s national spokesperson, Andy Haliwa says it is in the hands of the court of law to interpret the act and give meaning.
“The Union is still engaging stakeholders on our concerns which are bordering on improved working conditions,” says Haliwa.
He has however not disclosed any content of their discussion; saying the meetings are still in progress.
We have gathered that the Union representatives are today scheduled to meet Finance Minister, Sosten Gwengwe on the matter.
