SABC workers will take their fight against retrenchments to the Union Buildings in Pretoria, Gauteng, on Wednesday.

Workers affiliated to the Communications Workers Union (CWU) will embark on a nationwide strike, demanding a halt on the job cuts.

They have slammed the planned retrenchments as senseless and are accusing management of having negotiated in bad faith.

CWU wants the public broadcaster placed under administration.

The employees will be marching through a motorcade from the organisation’s headquarters in Auckland Park in a bid to ensure social distancing amid the crippling COVID-19 pandemic.

The SABC management says a no work no pay principle will apply.

It’s rejected claims that it has cut corners in implementing the Section 189 process and insists it is above board and the job cuts are necessary to boost the coffers of the cash-strapped public broadcaster.
