Zimbabwe: Drop charges and reinstate dismissed nurses now

In partnership with Public Services International, a Global Union Federation of more than 700 trade unions representing 30 million workers in 154 countries, and the Zimbabwean Nurses Association (ZINA).

The Zimbabwean government has arrested 13 nurses who were protesting their deteriorating pay and working conditions. They have since been released on bail but have been dismissed. With the inflation rate hovering around 1000%, the cost of living has risen so rapidly and steeply as to render public sector salaries almost worthless.

The Zimbabwean Nurses Association (ZINA), with workers gathered in Harare and Bulawayo, is pushing for an upward salary review and outstanding COVID-19 allowances, as well as adequate provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This was after government rendered the Bipartite Negotiating Panel for the sector useless, when it unilaterally declared that it would not be engaging in any form of collective bargaining for the next three months.

Support ZINA and the Zimbabwean nurses send your own letter of protest calling for the release and reinstatement of all nurses and that the Zimbabwe government cease intimidating and harassing health workers and instead listen to their legitimate demands and concerns.
