GRAIN Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) has accused its workforce of plans to stage a demonstration over wages in violation of the dictates of the Labour Act and without exhausting the available channels of resolving the conflict.

Food industry workers coalescing under the umbrella United Federation for Food and Allied Workers Union of Zimbabwe (UFFAWUZ) have notified their employers of the intention to stage a demonstration and to down their tools.

But GMAZ national chairman Tafadzwa Musarara feels the action was in bad spirit as it was being done irrespective of that there were already ongoing discussions between the parties to remedy the matter.

Despite the fact that discussions were still ongoing between the parties, the union has notified the employer of the intention to stage a demonstration, prompting GMAZ to plead with the Labour Minister, Paul Mavima to block the demonstrations.
