ZUNO President Thom Yung’ana has called on the dismissed nurses and midwives around the country to remain calm as the union continues to engage government on the possibility of having them reinstated.
Mr Yung’ana disclosed that the union has so far held meetings with various government authorities that include, the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Labour and Public Service Management Division in addition to the Secretary to Cabinet with the Zambia Congress of Trade Unions, to which ZUNO is affiliated.
Further, ZUNO has written to the Head of State His Excellency Mr Michael Chilufya Sata to convey an apology from the affected nurses for engaging in a work stoppage without following the laid down procedures.
