MTN South Africa aims to minimise disruptions during strike

Wednesday 24 June 2015 | 10:16 CET | News
MTN South Africa said it will take contingency measures to minimise disruption during industrial action by staff. MTN rejected allegation that it employs casual workers and said non-MTN staff are employees working for third party vendors. MTN said that, in line with the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, it has been paying employees working on Sundays and public holidays, contrary to the claims of the Communication Workers Union (CWU). Themba Nyathi, Chief Human Resources Officer, said the strike has impaired MTN's ability to provide optimum customer service.
