THE Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) is greatly disturbed by the government’s lack of seriousness in resolving its dispute with the striking doctors. The continued strike by the doctors is causing untold suffering and unnecessary death of ordinary Zimbabweans as the strike has paralyzed operations at state-run hospitals.
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) notes with disappointment the uninspiring National Budget Statement by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Professor Mthuli Ncube presented to Parliament on November 14, 2019 under the theme ‘Gearing for Higher Productivity, Growth and Job Creation’.

The master of ceremony, invited guests, President and General Secretaries of affiliate Unions, fellow workers of Zimbabwe, Ladies and Gentlemen. Before I go into my speech, may l kindly ask that we observe a minute of silence to remember our fellow countrymen and countrywomen who lost their lives due to cyclone IDAI.
THE Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions joins the nation in mourning the sad loss of lives due to the deadly Cyclone Idai that had devastated Chipinge and Chimanimani areas.
The ZCTU extends its heartfelt condolences to the families of the over 80 victims and wishes those injured a speedy recovery. It is disheartening to note that the country continues to lose its citizens to such avoidable disasters. It is a fact that the authorities knew about the cyclone weeks before it struck, but did absolutely nothing to prepare for its eventuality.
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions is appalled by the interrogation of the visiting Southern Africa Trade Union Co-ordination Council (SATUCC) delegation by state security agents upon arrival at the Robert Mugabe International airport yesterday.
