Guess what !!!!!

We have already started putting up new District Committees starting with Harare.
Drivers are burning to get Zudac into the NEC for the sake of our families and ourselves.

8000rtgs minimum wage is a mockery in for drivers.

South African government is about to put a legislation banning all foreign drivers without PrDP from driving in SA.

What it means is we must unite and face our Employers head on on the table to improve our terms and conditions of work.

Zudac is not going back and drivers are determined .

We love our country and we want to see our country generating more revenue .
Drivers we have a lot to advise our government and we will continue engaging our government

Tinokusimudzirai madzimai nekukuremekedzai sana Mai pazuva renyu.
You played a big part before the war , during and after the war.
Look at how many women are street vendors today.
It's because you are real women standing for the fruit of your womb.

May the Lord bless you and protect you.
Behind every successful man there is a woman behind.
I salute you for your courage in these trying times.
Sometimes as husbands we ill- treat you but you have resisted for the sake of the children.
Sometimes we leave you with the children as we take employment opportunities over seas but we always find you home with children.
Truck drivers wives we salute you for the great work and trust upon us even though we meet you twice or once a month.

Our God is watching and He is a rewarder of such women like you.
Happy mother's Day to you all

Official Notice of International Driver Permit fee review.

The Ministry of Transport has communicated to us on the new reduced International Driver Permit fees

3 years 70usd from 100usd.

2years 50usd from 90usd

1year. 25usd from. 80usd

This is not what we had proposed . We had proposed a flat fee of 10usd .
However we take it as a step forward and thank the Government for the review.

So we are advise all drivers of this development and we continue to push for a further reduction of the fee.
This was a complain which drivers raised to the Union . The Union has worked tirelessly to push for the reduction of the AA licence fee.
It was not an easy task for the Union.
Let us us continue working together to improve our salaries and conditions of work .
We assure you , we know drivers are angry but the Union will not lose focus will continue to fight for our rights to better salaries and job security.

As workers in the Transport industry what are we going to celebrate other than to thank God for overcoming Covid.

We can't celebrate:
- 8000rtgs minimum wage
- Missing our families
- No covid allowances
- 100usd AA International Driver Permit
- Position of being contract workers.
- Corrupt and heartless NEC.
- Bad roads.
- Banning of kombies source livelihood for ordinary Zimbabweans.
- Border ques and robberies and killings of drivers by robbers.
- Xenophobia in South Africa.
- The corrupt practice and the useless law of retesting PSV drivers.
It's an endless list and our God will finish the rest.
We hope the Tripartite Negotiating Forum will allow Transport workers to speak for themselves and consider the alignment of labour act to the national constitution and allow it to uphold labour rights as given in section 65 of the national constitution

Chirundu border post has become a challenge to truck drivers.
Robberies and corruption as a result of the long que.
We are currently engaging Zimra to give drivers a platform to give their ideas and views.

Zimbabwean truckdrivers are suffering as a result of lack of genuine representation in the NEC

Drivers are being made to work as contract workers for years.
If my job is permanent l must be a Permanent worker.
How can Toaz and Transport and general workers Union settle for minimum wage of 8000rtgs far below poverty datum line of 30 000rtgs or 300usd.
How can they refuse to offer covid allowances for drivers as frontline workers.
Our grades as truckdrivers must be increased
A 30 tonne truck driver can not be paid the same with T 35 driver.

International driver permit must come down from 100usd to 10-20usd because drivers can not afford this robbery.
Employers must allow trade unions to operate freely because our government has allowed us.

Drivers have resorted to going to other regional countries seeking greener pastures.
Our future must be sorted out now not tomorrow.
We call upon all drivers to join unions of their choices.
Unions will never be enemies of any government because there is no TNF negotiating forum without the government.
Employers must not see Unions as enemies but as friends to harmonize relations between employers and employees.
Lastly we remain focused on the fight against road carnage as drivers .
May God bless all transport workers and our families.

22/04/2021

We are continuing to engage our government on the need for a long lasting solution to the the crisis in the public transport system.
Our vehicles are nolonger roadworth
Robbers are taking advantage of the situation as they pretend to be genuine Transport providers.
We have united with Transport operators to seek audience with our government.
We hope the best will come out of the engagement.
Transport sector is reserved for ordinary Zimbabweans.
We are calling for organized transport operators to be given a chance .
We have a very good example in Bulawayo.
Courts will not solve anything but engagement is key to building our nation.
Thousands of Transport workers are suffering as a result of the Covid 19 ban of kombies .

Hope to find you well.
Road safety is our responsibility.
Let us behave and follow all road rules and regulations.
Let us ensure.
Safer vehicles
Safer roads
Safer road users
Effective data collection.
Effective and improved post crash management.
Life has no second chance.
We are appeal to enforcement to prioritize safety ahead of any other personal agenda.
All PSV drivers you are ambassadors of road safety.
As Zudac we are involved in the Road Safety policy review together with the UN and our Government.
Standards are going to change in the following to meet world standards:
Road construction.
Enforcement
Accident attendance
Driver testing
Vehicle examination
Dangerous goods transportation and enforcement.
Coordination of stakeholders
Vehicle loading system including inroad weighing standards.

Labour:
We have appealed for a statutory NEC.
Employers shall be forced to belong to associations and participate in the NEC .
Unions by virtue of being registered and with membership shall automatically be submitted into the NEC.
The old legal framework does not allow new Unions into the NEC and as a result drivers doesn't have:
Covid allowances
Adequate salaries above poverty datum line.
Miserable trip bonuses
Poor subsistence allowances.
No protective clothing.
Harsh terms and conditions of work
Drivers are unfairly fined for tyre damages, accidents and diese consumption.
Drivers are victimised for joining Unions.
Hiring and firing is high and unchecked
Drivers are nolonger permanent but poor contract workers.
TOAZ has become an enemy of all truckdrivers
The Existing NEC does not represent a fair platform for collective bargaining it is dominated by cruel employers who have endorsed an 8000rtgs for a driver driving through war torn countries like DRC and Mocambique.
Truck drivers work as frontline workers but get paid as useless workers.
We have presented these issues to the Minister of Labour and the bogus NEC .
Aluta Continua Drivers shall be free

Good morning

Our nation is experiencing a transport crisis . The government has done a good thing to resuscitate Zupco however there is need to include private operators in the public transport to compliment Zupco.
We thank the Minister of transport for giving us a green light to meet him three weeks ago where we discussed all issues affecting all PSV vehicle users including enforcement issues.
We will be holding meetings in a monthly basis to make sure that our engagement with the government does not become a one day event.
We admit that people are suffering but kombies must now come back organized . We are working with transport operators on mobilising Operators into associations of their choice.
We promise the public that our engagement with the government will bring a lasting solution to the transport crisis.
We are deeply concerned by the suffering of all transport crews and their crews as a result of the covid ban on kombies and we hope our engagement with the government will save lives.
We also call upon all people with disabilities to be given an opportunity to speak for themselves on their concerns with regards to transport.
As a Union we are very much aware of the concerns of the public on the behaviour of transport crews especially on fares and language.
We promise our beloved nation that as we are working with the government things are going to change.
We also appeal to the local government ministry to call for an all stakeholders meeting and start to embrace the government private partnership.
Lastly we urge Zimbabweans to take ownership of the transport sector as it is reserved for ordinary vana vevhu. Let comy with law and invest into the transport sector and create jobs for our youth who are now resorting to drugs abuse.
Let us unite as a nation and build our Zimbabwe.
Road safety management is our responsibility let us join hands and ensure
Safer road users
Safer roads
Safer vehicles
Post crash management
Disaster management.
May God Bless Zimbabwe.

We hope the issuing of passports for drivers will improve after the passport office fully adapt the new changes on the passport fee structure.
It now cost 60usd to have a passport in one month. 318usd was too much for drivers.
Zudac office will continue to write letters of recommendation for drivers to make it easier for our members to acquire passports.

The issue of international driver permit has been officially forwarded by CVR to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transport for consideration to bring the fees down for drivers to afford the fee.
Drivers earn a mockery salary of 8000rtgs and could they afford the 8000rtgs for international driver permit.
AAZ is killing drivers.
The matter will be then be taken to the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Finance George Guvamatanga to effect the changes.

Zudac Union remains committed to see the improvement of the terms and conditions of work for drivers .
All PSV drivers are suffering.
We have become a puching bag for all money thirst tycoons.
Zimbabwean labour laws are clear , we urge drivers to bring their labour issues to Zudac office
Our office is at Corner Mandela and takawira st Barbara house second floor Harare

Hope to find you well
It is now evident that
1- We are nolonger able to acquire passports
2- International Driver Permit is now a burden and way to milk drivers
3- We have become a poor working class
4- The NEC has become a slaughter room for drivers and other transport workers.
We are not folding our hands whilst drivers suffer.
The government is now aware of the the suffering of drivers.
International permit is coming down soon .
We have already engaged the Minister of transport
The minister of Labour is now aware of the collapse of labour representation in the transport sector
Drivers must recieve salaries above poverty datum line of 30 000 rtgs or 300 USD.

We appeal to our employers not to listen to the peanuts that are being offered by our heartless NEC

We have been left shocked as a Union on the untimely death of the late Minister of Transport Honourable Biggie Matiza.

He was the first Minister of transport to listen to our concerns and managed to meet Truckdrivers, bus drivers ,kombi drivers ,taxi drivers and other transport workers. Drivers had an opportunity to meet him face to face at the Rainbow Towers Hotel.

As drivers and other transport workers we will miss him and always remember his eagerness to assist. The late Minister was concerned with the hard terms and conditions of work for drivers in Zimbabwe and also disapproved the retesting of drivers as it has no contribution to driver skills improvement like defensive.
He was a hands on Minister and even allowed us as a Union to meet him even without an appointment. His door was always open.

The President, Government, Ministry of Transport staff and the nation have lost a dedicated cadre who worked tirelessly to reduce road carnage through road construction and stakeholder engagement.

We will miss him dearly and hope our Honourable President will find a replacement almost of his calibre.

We also join the Government in mourning other retired Generals and we express our deepest condolences to the families of the late Minister SB Moyo and Brigadier General Zimondi . They are a loss to the nation.

May their souls rest in eternal peace.
