AirZim workers demand immediate resignation of management and board

AirZim workers demand immediate resignation of management and board
Published: 06 January 2012 (1938 Views)
The Air Zimbabwe saga took a new twist yesterday with workers demanding the immediate resignation of the management and board for failing to pay them outstanding salaries and retrenchment packages.

The disgruntled workers gathered at the national airline's offices at the Harare International Airport to protest non-payment of their salaries for 7 months now.  

A group of 10 workers reportedly met Transport, Communications and Infrastructure Development Minister Nicholas Goche to try to find a solution.

Goche is, however, reported to have assurance letters written by their human resources department, which they would take to institutions, they owe money assuring them that Air Zimbabwe would "eventually give them salaries".

Prior to meeting Goche, the delegation held a meeting with airline board chairman Jonathan Kadzura.

They were referred to the ministry's permanent secretary Patterson Mbiriri and Goche. Martin Samson Meki, who has served the airliner for 49 years, led the delegation.

Meki said they were shocked when Goche told them to have assurance letters written by their human resources department.

The workers, however, questioned the minister's stance saying no institution would accept such an arrangement.

"You cannot use a letter to buy groceries in a supermarket. They cannot accept the assurance letters to enable us to purchase groceries," said Meki.

He lamented that they had no electricity in their homes and no water, while the medical aid deductions on their pay slips were not being remitted to Cimas Medical Aid Society. Daily News has AirZim workers denouncing Goche, which the paper rated as the worst minister in 2011, as a failure.
