Zimbabwe Bank Workers Union Presses Thrift On Sleep-In Dispute

The Zimbabwe Banks and Allied Workers Union has urged managers of the People’s Own Savings Bank to keep paying salaries to 30 workers suspended for sleeping in the bank canteen one night last week saying they could not afford to commute.

A union spokesman said the suspended workers briefed union officials on Monday and provided them with copies of the letters of suspension.

The bank is said have refused to award its staff a 165% salary increase recommended by an independent arbitrator.

The union's president, Blessing Mujuru, told reporter Jonga Kandemiiri of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that the union has already written to People’s Own Savings Bank management in the matter.
