Home Af­fairs strike con­tin­ues

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - RAPULA MOAT­SHE

THERE’s still no end in sight to the on­go­ing im­passe between the Home Af­fairs Depart­ment and the work­ers union over un­paid week­end shifts.

Dis­grun­tled work­ers have vowed to stay away from work on Satur­days un­til the depart­ment re­solves to pay them.

Mean­while, unions and the depart­ment were still locked in talks to find a so­lu­tion to the labour dis­pute, which has led to the sus­pen­sion of op­er­a­tions at Home Af­fairs of­fices coun­try­wide on Satur­days.

For a sec­ond week­end, the of­fices in Pre­to­ria were closed on Satur­day as of­fi­cials didn’t show up for work.

Ac­cord­ing to the depart­ment, the clo­sure of of­fices at week­ends would re­main un­til an agree­ment was reached.

Spokesper­son Bongiwe Gambu said the depart­ment was hope­ful that the on­go­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions would re­sult in a pos­i­tive out­come.
