235 SL smith workers in chingola risks of losing their employment after KCM reminated their company's 3years contract

About 235 SL Smith Company Employees In Chingola Are At Risk Of Losing Their Employment Come 14th June 2012 If They Do Not Join The New Company Which Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) Has Sub Contracted To Maintain Both Its North And East Concentrators.

The Workers Have Complained That KCM Management Has Sub-Contracted An Indian Firm By The Name Of On Shore.
A Workers` Representative Who Sought Anonymity Due To Fear Of Victimization Has Complained That KCM Has Contracted Over 3000 Indians Who Have Come To Do What Zambians Can Do And In The End Are Depriving Zambians Jobs.
Meanwhile The Workers Have Accused Nchanga  Member Of Parliament Wilbur Simusaa Of Neglecting A Lot Of Local Contractors Who Are Getting Their Contracts Terminated By KCM.

But  Mr Simusaa Has Promised To Meet The SL Smith Workers Next Week When He Tours His Constituency.
Mr Simuusa, Who Is Also Lands And Environment Minister Says He   Has Already Met With The Union Representatives Of The Miners To Find The Way Forward Over The Matter.

The Minister Has However Warned That He Will Not Tolerate Investors Such As KCM To Be Terminating Local Contractors And Start Sub-Contracting Foreign Firms To Come And Do The Same Work Which Can Be Done By Zambians.
