Unisa management, workers to finalise agreement reached
The two parties agreed that workers who were dismissed for taking part in the strike must be reinstated.
JOHANNESBURG - Management at the University of South Africa's (Unisa) Pretoria campus will be finalising and signing an agreement reached with the outsourcing movement today, bringing an end to its protest action at the institution.
Workers at Unisa say they are still hoping for a salary increase of R8,000 for all workers, while management says it's simply unaffordable.
The two parties reached a deadlock last night.
They have, however, agreed that workers who were dismissed for taking part in the strike must be reinstated.
Spokesperson for the workers, Vusi Mahlangu, said, "Today we are hoping that we will finalise the questions of the top-up because we are deadlocked on a question of how much the top-up must be and I believe that today we might find each other."
