Chambishi Copper Smelter jobs secure

HONE SIAME, Kitwe
CHAMBISHI Copper Smelter (CCS) has assured its 1,600 employees that their jobs are safe despite challenges the mining sector is facing.
CCS spokesperson Ireen Tembo said in an interview yesterday that the mining firm has no intention of laying off any employee.
Ms Tembo said the company is equally affected by falling copper prices at the international market but will not sacrifice workers.
“We are not laying off any employee. Jobs for all our 1,600 employees are safe,” Ms Tembo said.
She said CCS will also continue ploughing back into communities through its corporate social responsibility to supplement Government’s efforts in improving the welfare of the citizenry.
Other mines on the Copperbelt have retrenched workers following the fall of copper prices on the world market.
Mopani Copper Mines recently retrenched over 3,000 workers as part of Glencore’s strategy to remain afloat despite falling copper prices.
