The workers said they had not received their wages for September and October.

According to one of the workers, Kangati Kathewela, they were promised the wages by last Monday which have not been paid hence the industrial action.

AHL Group has assured the employees who are on a strike that they will get their September and October salaries within unspecified period.

In a statement, the Group says the delay is due to a reduction in revenue during this year’s tobacco selling season orchestrated by COVID-19 and a cut in commission among other factors.
