The South African Communist Party joins CWU to fight for the jobs of Afro Voice workers.

The South African Communist Party has expressed its shock at the developments at Afro Voice, formerly The New Age newspaper.

The national spokesperson for the party Alex Mashilo says they are more concerned about the job implications of the situation.

We were contacted by some of the workers from the paper and we've heard how the matter was handled by management.

Mashilo says they contacted the communications workers unions following these developments. He says the union has written a letter to Afro Voice management asking them to confirm the rumours so they can intervene as a trade union.

We are concerned about their jobs.

Alex Mashilo, SACP Head of Communications & National Spokesperson

The one month's pay is an important legal process. Once management has confirmed to the union, we will be there providing support.
