The Tripartite Negotiating Forum (TNF) has made tremendous progress towards reaching consensus through social dialogue on labour issues in the country.

This was said by Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Minister Professor Paul Mavima who chairs the TNF, at the close of the three-day social dialogue retreat which was attended by representatives of labour, business, government and the international labour organisation in Victoria Falls yesterday.

The retreat aimed at cementing relations and social agreements to prevent industrial actions emanating from disagreements around conditions of service comes as government under the second republic has committed itself towards improving conditions of work for civil service. 

Recently government launched the decent work policy and completed setting up a TNF Secretariat which had not been there over the years.

The meeting came up with priority areas which TNF partners want to be put under spotlight in their engagements next year, among them pegging salaries and wages in United States dollar terms.
