Nehawu takes Robben Island fight to CCMA
Nehawu fight to have shop stewards reinstated.
CAPE TOWN - The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union on Wednesday said it has taken its fight to have eight of its members reinstated to the Robben Island Museum to the CCMA.
Eight shop stewards were fired in March, after they were found guilty for misconduct.
They led more than 100 workers during strike action last year.
Police had to be called in when the striking workers disrupted operations at the museum by invading a ferry and protested in front of the CEO's office.
The union's Western Cape secretary Luthando Nogcinisa said victory is certain.
“The eight shop stewards are sitting at home as unemployed citizens but we are confident the CCMA will rule in our favour.”
