He said the attitude of going on strike in perpetuity or indefinite was not acceptable anywhere in the world, adding that he would go to parliament sooner to limit the number of days the government could tolerate or accommodate a strike action.
“We are examining it with the Attorney General’s office and when we are ready, we should head towards parliament to strengthen the labor law. We will continue to respect the right to strike and the right for workers to drive home their demands through strike action but there must be a limit as to how long you can be on a strike action because of its cost and consequence to productivity and the delivery of public goods and services.”
