CWU: Motsoeneng’s salary adjustment unreasonable
CWU members feel hard done by after lowering their wage demands to ensure the SABC remains functional.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has labelled the nearly R1 million salary adjustment awarded to South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Chief Operations Officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng unreasonable.
It says its members feel hard done by after they lowered their wage demands to ensure the SABC remains functional.
The CWU signed an 8 percent salary increase over two years for its employees this year.
It says its National Executive Committee will meet at the end of this month to discuss the increase and decide if any action should be taken.
CWU General Secretary Aubrey Tshabalala says, "I'm sure our members will feel hard done for the fact that they tried to reduce their demand on a salary increase, on the basis that they want to make sure that the SABC is a functional institution that will continue to preserve jobs."
