Zimbabwe - Government places public sector workers under direct supervision of the President’s office

At the end of December 2017, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Information announced that the body tasked with negotiation of public sector workers’ employment conditions – the Civil Service Commission – together with all public sector education institutions and the Zimbabwe Institute for Public Administration are being put under the direct supervision of the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC). The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) condemned the development, highlighting collective bargaining rights of public sector workers in the context of the ongoing negotiations concerning pension contributions and cancellation of vacation leave.
