ANOTHER PARTIAL VICTORY FOR CWU

DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES AGAINST MEMBERS REDUCED
VODACOM AGREES TO WITHDRAW CASE OF "VODACOM 11"
CWU PUSHES MEASURES TO DIMINISH FINANCIAL HARDSHIP
3 COMRADES STILL AWAITING "DISCIPLINARY" PROCEDURES

A top level intervention by CWU President Joe Chauke and General Secretary Gallant Roberts with top management at Vodacom has yielded some results. Most importantly are the following points

1. 18 of the people awaiting disciplinary procedures can resume work with only a final warning against them valid for nine months. These comrades should behave in an exemplary way to give the company no excuses to further discipline them.

2. Vodacom will endeavour to withdraw the case against the "Vodacom 11"

3. Employees who had medical aid and pension fund deductions made against them in August and lost much of their wages for that month can now pay these deductions over three months or encash leave to diminish financial hardhsip.

4. 3 Comrades will still have to face disciplinary procedures, mostly because they dared to complain to the police about threats made by Vodacom security forces. Apparently, Vodacom is trying to silence all news of its dirty war against the union, but terminating three employees who have much to say about the company's unfair labour practices will only have the opposite effect. CWU will fight these cases using all means legally possible.

POWER TO ICT WORKERS!
