UCT students demand workers be allowed to demonstrate
They say workers should be insourced if they are involved in the daily running of the institution.
CAPE TOWN - Protesting University of Cape Town students are demanding workers at the institution be allowed to participate in demonstrations, without being subjected to disciplinary action.
They say workers across the board should be insourced if they are involved in the daily running of the institution.
A list of demands has been forwarded to university management, who according to the students, agreed to meet with them tomorrow.
Students prioritised the needs of workers, placing it at the top their meeting's agenda.
Student activist, Khululwa Mthi, says workers deserve a minimum salary of at least R12,500.
"There are some who have still not been insourced. We are calling for the insourcing of all workers, and in particular with all of those demands."
University students are gathered at the campus' Jameson Hall to brief fellow students on a final list of demands submitted to varsity management.
