Telkom South Africa owes employees ZAR 5 mln

Wednesday 21 July 2021 | 15:15 CET | News
South Africa's Solidarity has won an arbitration award against Telkom related to the interpretation of salary increases for employees due from April 2017, MyBroadband reported. This comes after Solidarity had agreed with Telkom in 2016 to give a 6 percent salary increase to staff that would take effect in April 2017. Solidarity contended that Telkom, however, did not keep to the agreement and did not abide by its provisions. As a result, more than a 1,000 employees were disadvantaged unfairly.
