CWU seeks interdict against MTN over outsourcing
The union says its relationship with MTN remains hostile as the company continues to outsource workers.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) says it will be approaching the Labour Court next week to obtain a court interdict to prevent MTN from continuing to outsource its workers.
The union says its relationship with MTN remains hostile as the telecommunication company goes ahead with employing outsourced workers.
CWU's Clyde Mervin says although talks with MTN are not favourable, they have told employees to continue working while the union gets legal advice.
Mervin says MTN's management has gone as far as disciplining its shop stewards.
"You know anything can happen but as the leadership of the union, our members must relax until we get a legal opinion."
