Mr. Kaleyi has disclosed that the union has since written to FRA to reconsider reviewing upwards the maize price.
Meanwhile, FRA public relations officer Daniel Msoka says the authorities have written back to ZNFU proposing a meeting over the matter.
Mr. Msoka said the outcome of the meeting will be communicated to all stakeholders.
He said this in a telephone interview with ZNBC news.
