SAMWU Supports CWU Go-Slow at Telkom

The South African Municipal Workers Union has thrown its support behind the go slow at Telkom by works associated to the Communications Workers Union.

The workers are protesting against the outsourcing of Telkom’s call centre, supply chain and IT departments.

Samwu General Secretary Walter Theledi said they remain opposed to any form of outsourcing as it is responsible for the dire financial situation that workers find themselves in.

Theledi said undoubtedly, this move will result in job losses, as those who will be awarded to deliver these services will seek to ensure that they milk Telkom while workers suffer.

Theledi said Telkom has further failed to assure unions that it will force their service providers to incorporate all employees affected and that there will be no job losses.

Theledi said SAMWU will be embarking on a massive campaign against the privatisation of local government services.

“We are of the firm view that municipal services should be rendered by municipalities and not thorough the tendering systems” Theledi added.
