PF secretary General Winter Kabimba says the PF party is not desperate for numbers and would not allow the people that allegedly committed crimes to use the ruling party as a scape – goat.
Mr. Kabimba has indicated that party will only welcome individuals that clean records are committed to drive the social economic policies of the ruling party for the benefit of the majority Zambians.
Mr. Kabimba was speaking at a consultative meeting held between the labor movement and patriotic Front Party.
And Mr. Kabimba has also noted the PF government will not intimate the labor movement but will view it as a partner in development.
And speaking at the same event the federation of the free trade Unions of Zambia (FFTUZ) president Joyce Nonde – Simukoko advised the PF government to ensure that cooperate greed is addressed.
Mrs. Simukoko has also castigated the labor leaders that condemning the newly revised minimum wage.
The labor leader instead has described the minimum wage as low adding that employers in the country as well as parties such as the MMD have no moral right to accuse the PF government of not having consulted on the minimum wage.
Mrs. Simukoko has wondered why the employers did not call for dialogue when the minimum wage was set at K250, 000.
Mrs. Simukoko has also reminded the MMD it is one party that never consulted when it came up with laws that suppressed workers in the country adding that it is for this reason that the MMD lost favor from the workers.
And Zambia Congress of Trade Union (ZCTU) president Leonard Hikaumba has also called for maximum wage.
He says currently there are so many disparities in most companies between the management officials and lower ranking employees describing the trade as unfair.
Mr. Hikaumba says ZCTU agrees with the policies of the PF on the workers and pledged support to efforts aimed at improving the welfares of the employees in the country.
