The Post Retirement Medical Aid case starts tomorrow in the Johannesburg High Court. BEMAWU is the only union at the SABC taking up this matter on behalf of its members. The case has been set down for 10 court days. Only the applicants in this case will benefit from the judgment. All BEMAWU members are automatically claimants in the matter.
We approached the SABC with a request for a meeting to attempt to settle the matter, which request was .... Ignored.
We estimate the case will cost the SABC more than R5M.
