ZIMBABWE will tomorrow join the rest of the world in celebrating Workers’ Day.
In a statement, the Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Cde Prisca Mupfumira, said the Government recognises the sacrifice, discipline, perseverance, commitment and, most importantly patriotism and commitment of all its workers in the country.
“The social partners together with Government are inviting Zimbabwean workers to this year’s commemorations being held under the theme ‘Improved working conditions in a growing economy,’” she said.
This year’s main commemorations will be held in Mashonaland West Province at Chunhui Stadium. Cde Mupfumira said the commemorations will celebrate the worker as an important contributor to the economy while taking stock of the work that still lies ahead of us in improving working conditions.
“As Government, we are not resting until we are satisfied that workers are content with their working conditions. To this end, strides have been made in addressing workers’ plights through various initiatives like opening of the National Building Society by the National Social Security Authority, the introduction of a National Health Insurance Scheme and an enhanced funeral assistance package at no additional cost to beneficiaries.”
