Unions take aim at govt

Minister of labour and employment, Keketso Rantṧo

The Coalition of Trade Unions is exploring lawful avenue to deal express displeasure at the retention of Keketso Rantṧo as minister of labour and employment.

In an interview with theReporter, on Wednesday, Lesotho Wholesalers Catering and Allied Workers Union (LEWCAWU) spokesperson Lebonejoang Molefi said they have not received a response from Prime Minister Moeketsi Majoro, who they had given until last week Friday to replace Rantṧo.

“Rantṧo has not done anything for workers, so we are not willing discuss anything with her. That is why we want her out, above everything else.”


This comes after the trade unions last week demanded the release of a gazette for the 2020/2021 minimum wages.
