Harare crippled by strike action

HARARE City Council workers went on strike yesterday demanding improved salaries and better working conditions, paralysing service delivery in nearly all critical departments.

The workers are planning a massive demonstration at Town House on Monday morning.

They are also demanding an end to “secretive” payrolls and incentives to senior managers they claim were bleeding council resources at the expense of their welfare and service delivery.

The strike comes after the workers got an arbitral award of a 16 percent salary increment effective January this year.
