Workers in the diamond mining sector have formed a labour union to safeguard their interests, saying current legislation has loopholes that leave them open to abuse by miners. "Diamond workers have no job security and are subjected to short-term contracts even when they have been working for several years, in contravention of several sections of the Labour Act", said Zimbabwe Diamond Miners Workers Union (ZDMWU) president Francis Matinyare.
