Zambia: Zambia Sugar workers receive performance bonus


According to local sources, for the first time in the history of Zambia Sugar, all unionised employees received a 20 percent Performance Related Bonus for the 2012/2013 crushing season.

Unionised workers are those in categories A1 to C2 (Paterson grading system) and the bonus ranges from ZMK 2,605 (USD 491.51) in Scale A1 to ZMK 5,072 (USD 956.98) in Scale C2. To quality for this bonus, employees must have completed the season and been employed for at least six months continuously. This bonus is due on having reached the production and safety targets (or “Entity” targets), as well for the company having ended with good financial results (“Division” targets) and the Illovo Group with good financial results (“Group” targets).

    Rewards are very good especially if one still wants improved productivity.
    When receiving rewards,unions should be very keen so that fairness takes the day.For example,if rewards are in form of percentages,some workers with low pays are disadvantaged.
    My views are to have some agreed figure is given to everyone than a percentage.Any way
    you have set a very good example for us Comrades!!!
