Staff at Malawi Shipping Company and Malawi Port Services are on strike, to force their employers Mota Engil increase salaries.
Transport Workers Union member Joseph Chimasula said salaries at the Mota Engil owned companies are pathetic.
“Some of them get as low as K30000 per month, which is not in tandem with the current cost of life,” said Chimasula.
He said talks for the raise in salaries started as way back as 2014 but yielded nothing.
Mota Engil spokesperson Thomas Chafunya said management was aware of the issues and the strike.
He said they would respond in a few days time.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
