The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) says it will follow up with state arms manufacturer Denel this week to ensure that employees are paid what is owed to them.
The union announced it had been granted an order by the High Court in Pretoria for Denel to pay its workers their outstanding salaries and benefits dating back to May last year.
Denel and its various subsidiaries have been failing to pay employees their full monthly salaries and benefits due to financial challenges.
Numsa’s National Spokesperson, Phakamile Hlubi-Majola says the union plans to follow up with Denel this week.
“This is a victory for Numsa members at Denel. We have made many sacrifices to keep the entity going. They did so, even though the executive management and the board, as well as the Minister of public enterprises, did not care enough about their suffering to ensure they were paid their salaries. As Numsa, we will follow up with the Denel executive management this week to ensure that members receive all that is due to them,” says Hlubi-Majola.
Denel and its various subsidiaries have been failing to pay its employees their full monthly salaries and benefits due to financial struggles that have been well publicised in recent years.
