Fedusa: Adult education workers confused
The federation says no government department wants to take responsibility for these workers.
CAPE TOWN - The Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) on Wednesday said it is frustrated that no government department wants to take responsibility for adult education workers.
Many of these teachers are confused over whether to report to the basic or the higher education departments for contract negotiations.
Fedusa is meeting with Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe on Wednesday to discuss the issue.
South African ABET Educators Union (SAAEU)'s Patrick Lefalatsa says the existing system is frustrating.
"We don't know who our employers are so that we can negotiate our conditions of services. We feel it is unfair for people to be temporarily contracted, without any benefits, for more than 10 years."
