Unionized workers at NFCA in Chambishi have been awarded a 15 per cent pay rise.
This means, the lowest employee will now be getting home K4, 100.
The good news is that the threshold for taxable amount has been moved to K4, 000.
Mineworkers Union of Zambia (MUZ) President Joseph Chewe has thanked NFCA for a double digit increment.
