Zimbabwe Diamond and Allied Mine Workers Union (ZDAMWU) has embarked on educating miners about trade union, collective bargaining, dispute resolution, and law and labour procedures.

Zdamwu Secretary-General Mr Justice Chinhema said these programmes are expected to transform the structures at mine level up to regional committees around the country.
“These programmes will see the union revamping its structures at mine level up to regional committees across the country,” said Mr. Chinhema.
He further went on to say the training is meant to capacitate union members to occupy spaces within the trade union and in communities as well as giving members skills to bargain favourable wages and conducive working environments.
Mr Chinhema added that Zdamwu members are being trained to be knowledgeable of their rights, and be able to take action when those rights are violated.
So far, Zdamwu has managed to do the training at Sabi Gold Mine, Renco Mine, Bikita Minerals.
The Union plans to also visit Jena Mines, Rio Zim Kadoma, Golden Valley, Trojan Mine, Unki Mine, Turk Mine, Blanket Mi e, South Mine, Venice Mine, and Horny Mine.
Zdamwu is inviting mineworkers to join its union.
