sabc retrenchments

The Sunday Times had reported that the national broadcaster plans to cut its staff by 33%.

The Broadcasting, Electronic, Media and Allied Workers Union (Bemawu)) says the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) is not planning to retrench 33% of its staff.

Bemawu president Hannes du Buisson says the union had contacted the SABC following reports by the Sunday Times that there will be job cuts at the national broadcaster.

The paper also claimed that the SABC was hoping to save R279m a year and close down five regional offices.

We were equally shocked when we heard on Sunday morning that the SABC have this plan of retrenching a third of its staff.
