KwaZulu-Natal Secretary of the Communication Workers Union - Thami Mzileni, says the notice by the SABC Board to temporarily halt its retrenchment process, is not enough. The public broadcaster has suspended the section 189 process for a week, to allow for further consultation. Mzileni was addressing affected workers at the public broadcaster's office at Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. CWU members have embarked on a protected strike across the country against the retrenchments. Workers came together in a lunch time picket to voice their anger and frustration at the process, that many say, has lacked transparency and proper consultation. Mzileni says members want the process to be stopped immediately.
