Disgruntled Telkom employees march in Pretoria

About two thousand disgruntled employees are marching to Telkom headquarters in Pretoria, as unions kick off their campaign against the company’s profit sharing scheme. Trade unions claim Telkom’s CEO receives 130 percent of his salary in profit share, while workers get only four percent. Monday’s march is the first in a series of actions by Solidarity and the Communications Workers Union. Solidarity spokesperson Jaco Kleinhans said that Monday’s action has been successful so far, as all Solidarity members employed by Telkom are striking. Kleinhans says the marchers will hand over a memorandum to Telkom, before a decision is taken on their next move.
