UWC management to meet outsourced workers
The university says today’s meeting is part of a series of engagements following violent protests on campus.
CAPE TOWN - The University of the Western Cape (UWC)'s management will meet with outsourced workers today following violent protests on campus this week.
Yesterday, a group of protesters tried to disrupt lectures, but security was called in. At least one person was arrested.
UWC's Luthando Tyhalibongo says today's meeting is part of a series of engagements which have been planned to try and defuse tensions.
"This is a continuation of engagements with outsourced workers and we're trying to find solutions. We also want to engage with them on issues that they have with regards to the demand of R10,000 per month and the immediate appointment as permanent staff of the university."
Meanwhile, the University of Cape Town (UCT) says security will remain on high alert after sewage was dumped in five of its buildings yesterday morning.
