Mission Statement

Who says that we can't work together? Must have been the question the Zambian Government,

Employers Federation and Workers Union were asking after emerging with a tripartite agreement that would seek to establish a Social Protection Floor for people living in poverty and the most vulnerable conditions in Zambia. The three who are more often than not lying on opposite ends of a prism on 22nd May 2012 were in consensus about steering forth development and economic growth but on the basis of protecting the more vulnerable groups in society.

The notion encompassing the Social Protection Floor is to ha Read Moreve a basic standard of living for the average Zambian and the most vulnerable among them. A principle espoused in the Africa Platform for Social Protection (APSP) Vision, which states in principle to establish a living condition where Africans are no longer at risk from shocks of daily living. The three sectors which also got backing from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) clearly set out to promote employment creation in line with the overall goal of boosting sustainable development in the country.
