A week ago the Supreme Court delivered a landmark ruling allowing managers to unionise, paving way for the registration of the Banking and Finance Manager’ Union of Zimbabwe (BFMUZ) to form a union. The judgment was delivered by Supreme Court judge Justice Bharat Patel, sitting with justices Ben Hlatshwayo and Anne-Mary Gowora in a matter involving the Bankers’ Association of Zimbabwe (BAZ) and the BFMUZ. But BAZ held the position that managers cannot be members of a trade union because they represent the interests of employers. However, Justice Bharat Patel this week upheld the lower court decision saying there was nothing sinister at law for managers to form or join a trade union that represents their interests. He ruled that the appeal could not be sustained. “Section 45 of the Labour Act, properly construed, clearly allows the registration of the first respondent as a trade union to represent the interests of managerial employees in the banking sector,” he ruled.
