Correctional Services' 'racial promotions' heads to ConCourt
10 officials claim they were overlooked for promotions due to their race.
CAPE TOWN - Ten Correctional Services officials who claim they were overlooked for promotions due to their race are headed to the Constitutional Court.
Trade Union Solidarity is taking the Correctional Services Ministry to the highest court in the land on behalf of the officials.
Last year, the Labour Court ruled in their favour saying it was unfair for the department to use national demographics when setting equity targets.
Solidarity's, Dirk Groenewald, says the matter will be heard later this year.
"The Department of Correctional Services should compensate our 10 members and appoint them where necessary, seeing that the Department of Correctional Services has unfairly discriminated against them."
