1.Background and Justification

       1.1     The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions is the umbrella body for all Trade
               Unions in the country, it was formed in 1983. The federation is composed of 32
               affiliates who operate in different economic fields.

       1.2     The information age has arrived but alas the Z.C.T.U. affiliates have various
               problems such as lack of computer skills training.

       1.3     In some instances some affiliates do not have computers thus a very big problem
               in as far as building up Data Base of members and communicating with the
               Labour Centre and other affiliates is concerned.

       1.4     The speed of communication and access to information is critical in this ever
               changing world, without computers and skills to use computers globalisation will
               never be achieved.

       1.5     Computers are available in Zimbabwe but most of them are not connected to the
               Internet rather they are used for typing. Electronic mail is available and various
               providers are willing to connect provided you can afford the hardware and the
               relevant soft ware. It is essential that as soon as finances permit we should invest
               in computers in order to build up our Data- Base of members and to
               communicate amongst affiliates, the Labour Centre and other Labour
               Organisations World wide.

   Trade Union Policy-makers
