Striking Air Zimbabwe workers receive government payment, strike continues

7-Apr-2011 1:32 PM

Zimbabwe's Ministry of Transport, Communications and Infrastructure Development paid USD400,000 to striking Air Zimbabwe workers (All Africa, 05-Apr-2011). The carrier's board chairman Jonathan Kadzura stated: "That issue has been resolved amicably as the parent ministry has assisted with payment of the money owed." Mr Kadzura added that its recently "seized assets" would soon be returned, however its cabin crew and pilots remain on strike. Air Zimbabwe has pulled out of 18 of its 25 routes and reduced the number of flights per week.
