Mascom withdraws appeal against trade union fee ruling

Thursday 24 January 2019 | 13:18 CET | News
Botswanan operator Mascom Wireless has withdrawn a case from the Court of Appeal, seeking to overturn a High Court ruling that it should collection trade union fees from junior employees, the Patriot reported. Mascom lost the case in 2018 in which it refused to collect fees for staff in Band 5 and remit them to the Botswana Communication Workers Union (BOCOWU) union, insisting that they did not qualify to unionise, as they fall in the management cadre.
