South Africa: CWUSA Statement On Generations Cast Dismissals

press release

We believe that it is the right of any worker to raise issues of concern about their working conditions. It is unbecoming of any employer to respond to written demands by a dismisal. It is in fact illegal to respond to written demands by means of intimidation and worse now that the intimidation has resulted in a dismisal.

We therefore call for all parties to go back into the negotiation table to re look at best possibilities.

We are more than willing to mediate as it ought to be if SABC was to do things correctly and we are happy to announce that MWASA is supportive of this approach.

We hope SABC this time will respond to our call and avert the situation turning ugly than it is right now.
