HOSPERSA TO MARCH FOR IMPROVED WORKING CONDITIONS AT EZEMVELO KZN WILDLIFE
07 March 2019
Hospersa in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) province is requesting members of the media to attend a march to address workers’ employment issues at Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.
The Union will be marching to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife offices in Pietermaritzburg to hand over a memorandum of demands on the following issues:
1. Non-sitting of salary negotiations for the past two (2) years;
2. The closure of working stations by the Department of Labour;
3. Casualisation of employees;
4. Movement of staff;
5. Poor management and maladministration; and
6. High levels of staff shortages.
Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife has come under heavy criticism in recent years over its financial woes, which have been attributed to non-filing of key vacancies, poor management and corruption as well as poor leadership by its board. Hospersa’s march will look to put pressure on the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife to address these challenges and improve the working conditions of its members.
A memorandum of demands will be handed to Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife for these issues to be addressed.
Please see details of the march below:
Date: 08 March 2019 (Friday)
