The latest Oxfam inequality report should shock our movement and its government into action

17 January 2017

The recent Oxfam`s inequality report that shows that the rich are getting richer, while the poor are getting poorer has not surprised COSATU, but we hope that it will shock the ANC and its government into action. The revelation that the wealth of three men in South Africa is greater than the wealth of the bottom 50% of the country combined is a tragedy of epic proportions.

SADTU in the Eastern Cape cautions Education MEC and HOD to comply with court order and pay salaries of teachers

13 January 2017

The Department of Education in the Eastern Cape is at it again, accumulating backlogs on the payment of educator salaries. This is despite the order of the Labour Court on the 14th December 2016. SADTU reiterates its position that the failure of the Department to pay salaries as prescribed in law constitutes a violation of the rights of educators the courts have stated. It is worse when such violations happen despite a court order directing the MEC and the HoD to ensure that all salaries are paid.

13 January 2017

The South African Democratic Teachers` Union condemns in the strongest terms possible the ongoing failure of the Limpopo Department of Education to comply with the laws regarding the payment of the salaries of educators. More than 100 educators nearly spent their Christmas and New Year without having received their salaries were SADTU not to launch an urgent application in the Labour Court on the 2nd December 2016 to force the Department to pay their salaries. As a result of this application, 70 educators received their salaries by December 31 2016.
