Konkola Copper Mines has awarded its unionised workers a 7% salary increase. This follows the signing of the 2018 collective agreement with the three unions, Mineworkers Union of Zambia (MUZ), National Union of Miners and allied workers (NUMAW) and United Mineworkers Unions of Zambia (UMUZ). NUMAW President James Chansa has said it was not easy to arrive at the 7% salary increase for 2018 looking at the many challenges KCM endured in the last few years. He implored unionised workers to accept the percentage arrived at. Chansa further appealed to management at Konkola Copper Mines to adhere and implement the collective agreement without fail. “Concluding negotiations is one thing and we now start waiting for the implementation of this collective agreement at full capacity. We also wish to urge our members to accept this percentage because that was the best we managed but we will continue to do more,†he said. Chansa has called for dialogue for all unions to ensure that the sector is protected as it is the country’s economic driver. And KCM Vice President Human Capital Management Chimango Chikwanda said the company’s production levels are still way below despite copper prices averaging USD $ 7, 000 per tonne. She said KCM hopes the partnership with unions will help realise its targets of raising copper production to about 500,000 tonnes in a year. Chikwanda has further assured that despite the challenges, KCM will not experience any job losses. The post KCM Awards Workers 7% Pay Rise appeared first on Zambia Reports.
