ZCTU rejects $USD 75 allowances

Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions has rejected the salary review and the new USD alliance that was proposed by the government this afternoon. Using their official Twitter handle, ZCTU said the government’s offer came a little too late and dismissed it as “Mazepe” which metaphorically likens the government’s offer to baby food which adults cant eat to satiety.

ZCTU tweeted:

ZCTU announced today that they will be holding a press conference tomorrow to address the way forward for all Zimbabwean workers. Speaking to the media, the president of the ZCTU, Mr. Peter Mutasa said they were now demanding a new economic order that would enable workers to be paid in US dollars or South African Rands.
