Zimbabwe unions back strikes amid economic chaos

Terrible headline....sounds like the unions are deliberatly sabotaging the economy, not protesting bad economic policies that actually are the problem...

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's main labor federation, a key ally of the divided opposition movement, decided on Saturday to lead a national strike for higher wages as the economy teetered on the brink of collapse.

The meeting coincided with a Harare by-election expected to test the level of popular discontent with the ruling party ZANU-PF, accused by critics of driving the country deep into crisis with an annual inflation rate now topping 1,000 percent.
