This day means alot to us as some other brave workers somewhere fought for this day for a common worker (including female worker) to realise his/her workers rights and come out of oppression.
We don’t think that public and private sectors have done enough to create fair employment and equal opportunities for both male and women in the sense that despite some governments efforts to ensure fair employment and equal opportunities for both male and female workers, there are still other individuals who do not accept that women are also human beings, they don’t want to employ women sometimes they employ maybe 7 women against 300 male workers and in lower positions that do not matter much. How do you expect equal opportunities in these scenarios? We want equal opportunities for leadership positions at work and unions
We as women would like to see governments putting in place deliberate policies that speak to these issues and not only that but ensuring implementation mechanisms that can achieve the objectives
Here in Zimbawe we will not have the usual activities in open places as we used to do in the past due to the current world situation. Instead Min. of Labour, Employers Association and Union Federation have delivered Labour Day statements. More updates if they will be any and ZCTU president will give his speech on Facebook bat 1100hrs today.
Gender equality at work is what women are asking Give women opportunities and the will grab them
Shinga Mushandi Shinga!!!!
