Workers' strike set to tax DRC
The DGI trade union leaders informed its members on Wednesday of the failure by the authorities to address their grievances, necessitating the general assembly on Thursday. The DGI is the only body mandated to issue a strike notice.
The union leaders blamed the ministry of finance for not keeping its promises while dealing with the workers body.
The union leaders claimed finance minister, Marco Banguli had committed to paying all the arrears of allowances and surplus if the DGI recorded an income exceeding 19bn Congolese francs ($44mn).
But, the workers contend the DGI recorded more than 20bn francs in revenue.
It is feared the strikes would greatly affect the national economy, with a shortfall in the government revenue. -panapress
