At the moment, the employer is stubborn and no negotiations are taking place.— Solly Malema, national coordinator at Nupsaw
Malema says that on Wednesday no progress was made at head office, adding that workers picketed and exercised their right to have a trade union on Thursday.
Malema says that when they started the process of establishing a trade union, they had around 200 members and now they have 1 400 members.
We don’t see the reason why the employer is refusing to recognise the union.— Solly Malema, national coordinator at Nupsaw
