She addressed various issues such as the workers salaries, their welfare and the contribution they have made to the economy.
"There is a saying that ‘the success of any country depends on the strength of its workers’, no developed country without workers - Last year our Nation entered the Central Economy, we have reached that point because of the Workers, I congratulate all the Workers," President Samia Suluhu asserted.
Samia Suluhu has announced a 'Pay as You Earn' (PAYE) tax deduction from 9% to 8% to provide relief to employees. This came after a request from the TUCTA Secretary General on salaries reduction.
Suluhu said,"Rais wa Tanzania, Samia Suluhu ametangaza punguzo ya Kodi ya 'Lipa kadiri unavyovuna' (PAYE) kutoka 9% hadi 8% ili kuwapa unafuu watumishi> Hii imetokana na ombi la Katibu Mkuu wa TUCTA kuomba kupunguziwa kodi hiyo kwenye mishahara."
Zanzibar president Mwinyi said that professionals who include teachers and health workers should be given a fair share of salaries.
