The demonstrations came in the fourth week, when the union accused University Vice-Chancellor Pulenga Lenkabul of failing to follow procedures to terminate contracts with staff.

JOHANNESBURG – The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Kosat) in Gauteng has striked workers in the National Union of Education, Health and Allied Workers (Nehawu) at the University of South Africa over the dismissal of five staff members who are also guilds.

The demonstrations came in the fourth week, when the union accused University Vice-Chancellor Pulenga Lenkabul of failing to follow procedures to terminate contracts with staff.

Last month, several graduates at the institution were abruptly suspended by disgruntled workers who seized a trial at ZK Matthews Hall in Pretoria over allegations that Lenkabula undermined last year’s collective bargaining by awarding several employees a pay raise.

Cosatu Secretary Gauteng Louise Madikwe said: “We continue to call for lunch pickets and demonstrations at the Department of Higher Education and Training, including the TPE colleges and universities in Tswan. And if these abnormal behaviors of the vice-chancellor and the university remain against constructive cooperation, we definitely call for a second strike. “
