JOHANNESBURG - The Outsourcing Must Fall movement says workers at the Tshwane South College's Atteridgeville campus say they will down tools from today, accusing management of refusing to listen to their demands.

Protesting workers and students shut down the campus yesterday, saying officials have failed to address issues of outsourcing and wage disputes.

The Department of Higher Education had previously intervened, ordering that talks be held between concerned parties.

The movement's Austin Mofya says, "We're going to completely shut down every service provided by those outsourced services. If we protect, the business still continues as normal, nobody is going to come to our attention."
