Fools Mine management has been held hostage by workers demanding their salaries, National Union of Mines Quarrying Iron and Steel Workers of Zimbabwe regional officer Abraham Kavalanjila has said.
The Trade Union regional officer said he was informed of the developments by workers at the mine.
“Have been phoned by workers informing me that they have locked management inside the mine premises demanding their unpaid salaries, the company want to pay $50 per employee?” he said.
The company manager Thabani Masuku confirmed that the management was held hostage by workers who were demanding to be paid their outstanding salaries.
The oddly named Chinese-owned mine has been of late in the Media for negative reasons. In February it was summoned to the National Employment Council (NEC) to answer charges of underpaying employees and failing to provide protective clothing.
One of the company Directors (a Chinese national) also led the company image to disrepute when he assaulted two employees over outstanding salaries.
