ADT protesting staff return to work

Security guards at the private security group, ADT had been on strike, protesting against the installation of video cameras in their patrol vehicles. The strike began on Wednesday.

Fidelity Security CEO Wahl Baartman says they have addressed the issues with their staff and adds that protesting workers have gone back to work.

Baartman says the protest was due to the change of date that the security guards receive their payment and insists the changes do not affect remuneration.

All our teams are back on the roads.
