Ms Kam­pamba said fol­low­ing a joint press brief­ing with Min­is­ter of Labour and So­cial Se­cu­rity Joyce Nonde Simukoko on the is­sue of out­sourc­ing mines work­ers by KCM, the State was await­ing the out­come of the talks.

She said Gov­ern­ment did not ne­go­ti­ate on be­half of em­ploy­ees as that was the rea­son unions ex­isted and that the State would only step in if the two reached a dis­pute which should be com­mu­ni­cated to Ms Simukoko as the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble in a comprehensive re­port de­tail­ing con­cerns and griev­ances.

Ms Kam­pamba who is also Min­is­ter of In­for­ma­tion and Broad­cast­ing said in a sit­u­a­tion where a dis­pute was reached, the two par­ties would then be sum­moned.

In an in­ter­view yes­ter­day, the min­is­ter said Ms Simukoko would there­after in­form the na­tion of what the next course of ac­tion would be.

Gov­ern­ment will only step in if the two par­ties have reached a dis­pute which has to be com­mu­ni­cated to the min­is­ter in a re­port high­light­ing con­cerns and is­sues,” Ms Kam­pamba said.

Ms Kam­pamba said all cor­re­spon­dence on the mat­ter would have to go through Ms Simukoko as the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble.
