218 Illovo Pump Attendants Bank Hope in Court
About 218 water pump field attendants in Chikwawa are waiting for Industrial Relations Court in Blantyre to conclude review in a case which the workers are pushing Illovo Sugar Limited to pay them their overtime money.
Lawyer for the workers, Luciano Mickeus, of Mick Law and Company told Zodiak Wednesday afternoon that Illovo asked for a review after the High Court ordered the Industrial Relations Court to conduct the assessment and pay the workers.
He said the industrial court proceeded with assessment and ordered the company to pay the workers but the company filed for a review.
Illovo Sugar Limited Lawyer referred the matter to his client.
The Company' Communications and Stakeholders Relations Manager Olive Kawelama also declined to comment saying the matter is still in court.
Earlier, High Court Registrar Gladys Gondwe confirmed to Zodiak that the matter is indeed under review at Industrial Relations Court in Blantyre.
The case has been in court for some years now.
