Title   Annual Survey of Violations of Trade Union Rights 2003
Author International Confederation of Free Trade Unions
Edition PDF
Published Brussels: ICTFU
Year 2003-01-06
Pages 4
Abstract The year 2002 was marked by the highest degree of violence and intimidation that Zimbabwe had ever experienced against trade unionists and pro-democracy advocators. This was particularly marked during the pre-electoral period leading to Robert Mugabeís controversial re-election in March. New legislation was adopted to suppress any kind of opposition, and the trade union movement was the first victim. Trade union meetings were monitored or banned, unionists were constantly under pressure and union leaders were repeatedly arrested and intimidated. Several trade unionists were beaten up.
