Graça Machel Trust launches movement to elevate women's leadership in African development
The current downturn in industrial relations at Mozambique Independent Television (TIM) follows the employers’ failure to honour a promise to pay wage arrears by February 28 made at the end of January.
According to Noticias yon Wednesday, the spokesman for the circa 100 workers, Paulo Chimane, said that the arrears were long overdue.
On 23 December, the parties signed an agreement mediated by the Commission for Labour Mediation and Arbitration (COMAL), under which the managers agreed to pay salaries UNTIL OR BY 23 January.
“Some of us have been evicted from rented homes, others are just waiting for owners to throw them out,” the newspaper quotes one of the workers as saying.
Zacarias Timbana, director of Human Resources at TIM, said that the employers are making every effort to pay wages as quickly as possible.
“The money was not paid because it was not possible yet. We did not get money, but we believe it will appear.” he said.
A promise that wages would be paid this Friday similarly went unfulfilled.Source: MMO / AIM Moçambique
