Unionized Shoprite workers in Chipata have joined the countrywide strike.

Unionized Shoprite workers in Chipata have gone on strike, joining the rest in the country.
A check by Breeze News found the workers just seated outside, while the chain shop is closed.
Placards demanding for increased salaries have been displayed at the entrance of the shop.
And Chipata Branch Union Shop Steward Chairperson, Joseph Mushota told Breeze News that the workers are demanding for improved salaries, which national union leaders have been negotiating with management since June.
Mr. Mushota, who could not give any further details, said that workers at Shoprite Chipata will not go back for work, until they receive new instructions from NUCIW, the National Union of Commercial and Industrial Workers general secretary Seth Paraza.
“Not slaves in our own country, no more slavery after 49 years of independence”, red some of the placards.
A comment from Shoprite management at Chipata Branch proved futile by news time.
