LEADERSHIP ROW EMERGES IN THE ALLIED WORKERS UNION OF ZAMBIA A NEWLY FORMED AND SPLINTER MINERS UNION BASED IN NORTHWESTERN ZAMBIA

A LEADERSHIP ROW HAS EMERGED IN THE ALLIED WORKERS UNION OF ZAMBIA A NEWLY FORMED AND SPLINTER MINERS UNION BASED IN NORTHWESTERN ZAMBIA IN WHICH SOME EXECUTIVE MEMBERS SLAPPED A SUSPENSION ON ITS INTERIM PRESIDENT FOR BAD CONDUCT LIKELY TO BRING THE NAME OF THE MOVEMENT INTO DISREPUTE.
MEDIA REPORTS SAID THAT MR THOMAS MPASHI THE INTERIM LEADER HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FROM HIS DUTIES WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT FOR WHAT HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS BAD CONDUCT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
ACCORDING TO REPORTS, DIFFERENCES DEEPENED IN THE NEWLY FORMED CONSOLIDATED MINERS AND ALLIED WORKERS UNION OF ZAMBIA LEADING TO THE SUSPENSION OF MR MPASHI, WHO HAD EARLIER DROPPED AND REPLACED THEM WITH A NEW TEAM FOR BEING NON MINERS.
MR MPASHI SAID SEVEN MEMBERS WERE DROPPED FOLLOWING RECENT EVENTS IN THE LABOUR MOVEMENT SUGGESTING THAT A UNION LEADER MUST ALSO BE EMPLOYED IN THE SAME INDUSTRY IN WHICH HE REPRESENTED OTHER MEMBERS.
MR MPASHI SAID THAT “THIS CHANGE HAS COME WITH THE NEW ‘ACT’ WHICH STATES THAT ONLY (ELIGIBLE) EMPLOYEES IN THE MINES CAN FORM A TRADE UNION TO REPRESENT FELLOW MINERS.”
INITIALLY, CMAWUZ ERRED BY DRAFTING NON MINERS INTO ITS NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE BUT REALIZED THE PREDICAMENT AND WANTED TO CORRECT THE ANOMALY.
