Denel doesn’t have operating capital to pay workers - Report
Unions Solidarity and the United Association of South Africa are preparing to file contempt of court papers after the state arms manufacturer Denel failed to comply with a judgment, ordering them to pay workers outstanding salaries.
Eyewitness News Reporter Bonga Dlulane says Denel has been struggling to pay over 3,700 employees their full salaries since May this year, stating they do not have the money.

The Labour Court on 4 August 2020 ordered Denel to pay workers outstanding salaries for May, June and July as well as statutory obligations such as employee pension fund on the 7 of August.
Dlulane says Denel told trade unions that it could not honour the court ruling due to liquidity crisis which led them to miss the deadline. He added that the government is not able to assist further as money is now focused on funding COVID-19 related issues.
Government has made it clear that with the money going to COVID-19, we don’t have money to be bailing SOEs.Bonga Dlulane- EWN Reporter
