BEMAWU today met with the Acting Chief Executive of Human Resources, Mr Sipho Sithole who cleared the misunderstanding about leave and confirmed that the instruction to reduce ONLY refers to compulsory leave in terms of the policy, and not to any other leave.

Mr. Sithole confirmed that no employee will forfeit any other leave not taken, but at the same time the SABC wants to encourage employees to reduce their leave.

He confirmed that the SABC will engage organized labour soon to discuss ways and means to lawfully reduce accumulated leave.

Employees must, in terms of the leave policy take compulsory leave. All other leave will remain in tact and cannot be forfeited. No manager can compel an employee to take non-compulsory leave.
