Malawi Focuses on its Labour Relations

Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera has announced reforms his administration will take to create better conditions and rights for workers in his country. Presiding over a commemoration for Internationals Workers Day Saturday at his State House in Blantyre, Chakwera noted that a decent work environment and workers’ rights are compromised in Malawi. In his speech, Chakwera said he is aware of labor-related challenges which have come about because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The fact is that the pandemic has been hard for all workers, costly for most workers, life threatening for many, devastating and fatal for some. And we must tailor our assistance to workers regarding these things without creating a false equivalence between the various scenarios. It makes sense to treat those workers as priority for personal and social protection,” he said. Chakwera, who came into power in June following a rerun vote, announced reforms his administration will make to safeguard good working conditions for Malawian workers.
