Easipark relents to pressure, reinstates workers

Easipark embroiled in labour dispute

EASIPARK has caved in to pressure and reinstated 40 workers whose contracts it had refused to renew last week.

The dismissals sparked massive protests by the South African company’s entire workforce in solidarity with their colleagues.

The reinstatement deal came late Friday after the intervention of the Harare City Council, which is a partnership with the car parking company.

Deputy Harare Mayor Emmanuel Chiroto confirmed the development.

“We had a meeting with the company management which has agreed to reinstate the affected workers,” Chiroto said.

“They have in fact assured us that the workers will be back at work by Friday.”

Last year Easipark was threatened by a pro-Zanu PF youth militant group Upfumi Kuvadiki which says the company should go back to South Africa and leave the parking facilities job to Zimbabwean companies.

The group was citing the controversial indigenisation regulations which order that locals should hold majority shareholding in any foreign, often white, business entity.
