We have just received a Notice of Removal from the applicant, Barry Aaron.
The SABC undertook to pay him, and he has removed the Application from the Roll. What it means is that the matter will be held over to a later date and can be re-enrolled at any time if the SABC does not pay.
The Application has not been withdrawn.
The SABC Board has really put us in a huge mess. It is their most important task to see that the SABC stays afloat and be able to meet its mandate. By allowing money to be spent in this manner and end up on the steps of the High Court before they pay smacks of unprofessional and irresponsible management. Now everyone’s jobs are at stake.
We must demand that we get a competent Board and top management.
BEMAWU will consult it's lawyers on Monday to investigate the possibility to bring an application to put the SABC under judicial management.
