The number of labour disputes in Mozambique fell 25 percent from 4,000 in 2017 to 3,000 last year, because of increased bankruptcies among small and medium-sized enterprises, the Mozambican Workers’ Organisation (OTM) has said.
OTM Secretary-General Alexandre Munguambe, speaking on public TV channel TVM said: “This fall is not about more effective resolution of labour disputes, but it is related to the increase in bankruptcies,” although he did not specify the number of companies that closed last year.
The agriculture, private security, services and construction sectors are the locus of most labour conflicts in the country, with delayed and unpaid wages and disregard of working hours by labour entities the main causes of labour disputes, the OTM Secretary-General stressed.Source: Lusa
