Shoprite Workers in Chipata have resumed work after three days of striking against poor salaries.

Unionised workers from Shoprite Chipata Branch have gone back to work.
A check by Breeze News this morning found that the South African chain store, which has been closed for three days, was open with customers going about their business.
Yesterday, Labour Minister, Fackson Shamenda directed his Permanent Secretary, Trevor Kaunda to immediately summon Shoprite Checker’s management and the union representatives to resolve allegations levelled against the former.
Mr Shamenda said management at Shoprite and leaders from the National Union of Commercial and Industrial workers of Zambia NUCIW should report to his office immediately to ascertain what the problem was.
He said his office would not tolerate any lawlessness from any investors who wanted to deliberately flout stipulated labour laws in the country.
Previously, Shoprite management had fired all 3000 workers across the country and advised them to reapply after they went on strike demanding better salaries.
