HARARE-- The Zimbabwe Government remains committed to improving working conditions of its workers as shown by its continuous review of labour laws to address challenges such as the unfair dismissals, says Labour and Social Welfare Minister Petronella Kagonye.

In a statement issued here Tuesday to celebrate Workers Day, Kagonye said the government recognised the commitment of its workers.

Government recognizes the sacrifice, discipline, dutiful commitment, perseverance and above all, patriotism of all workers, in the public and private sectors. Government remains committed to improving the workers. Several measures have been put in place to address this important goal, she added.

The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has, however, condemned the government for failing to respond to concerns expressed by workers which culminated in crippling strikes by doctors and nurses this year.

ZLHR calls upon Government to cease the needless intimidation and persecution of employees for exercising their fundamental freedoms and rights, including labour rights, said the rights group.

Zimbabwe doctors downed tools for a month in March followed by the nurses' strike in April. Teachers have also threatened to go on industrial action when schools re-open next week.
