The Broadcasting, Electronic, Media and Allied Workers Union in the memorandum called on parliament to:
Instruct the SABC to stop its staff retrenchment plan;
Appoint a task team to turn around the SABC with the full involvement of employees;
Investigate new SABC revenue streams;
Put in place control measures to prevent fruitless, wasteful and unauthorised expenditure;
In its memorandum of demands, presented by CWU general secretary Aubrey Tshabalala, the union gave the SABC until November 16 to respond or face a shutdown.
