Roughly 30,000 workers are expected to take to the streets of Maputo on 1 May for the annual march to coincide with international workers day. This year they will be marching under the slogan Let our labour and union rights be upheld in the labour law. National labour legislation is currently under review in Mozambique and there is concern that rights that are enshrined in existing laws will be sacrificed in future legislation in favour of greater flexibility and competitiveness. Reform of the labour law must be carried out with a view to improving job stability and promoting those who work to produce wealth and development in the country, said Ams Matsinhe, president of the Mozambican Workers Organisation-Union Central (OTM-CS).
