GLAM­OUR alert

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour 2017 March -

My friends call me a hoarder be­cause of my stack of GLAMOURS. The truth is that I keep them for fu­ture ref­er­ence. Last Oc­to­ber, I was in a sit­u­a­tion where my col­leagues earned more than I did for do­ing less work. The ‘Know your rights!’ fea­ture in the April’16 is­sue was an eye opener. It gave me the in­for­ma­tion and so­lu­tions I needed for deal­ing with mis­treat­ment and un­fair work con­di­tions and I be­came proac­tive, and joined a union. Once I had lodged my com­plaint, de­tail­ing the un­pro­fes­sional ac­tions of man­age­ment, counter mea­sures were taken by the union and HR. Now I re­ceive the same pay as my col­leagues do, and it’s thanks to you, and your con­stant em­pow­er­ment and en­cour­age­ment to fight for what we [women] want. – Mongezi Zungu, via email
