NUMSA calls for Gordhan’s dismissal if guilty of holding onto workers’ funds

Published on

NUMSA and its members are currently protesting against SAA and Denel, further calling for the dismissal of Pravin Gordhan if he is unlawfully holding onto workers’ funds.

The National Union of Mineworkers in South Africa (NUMSA) took to Twitter on Friday, 4 December 2020, to confirm that it has embarked on protest action. The protest action is against Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan and the executives of South African Airways (SAA) and Denel.

The union claimed that it is due to the incompetence of the boards that the parastatals are in the financial state they are in. However, it is the workers that are set to suffer in the long-term, should the planned retrenchments be implemented.

As such, the union has called for Gordhan to be fired or asked to step down from his position. The belief is that under new leadership that is not Gordhan, the funds meant to be allocated to workers would eventually reach them. The post stated, “Dear Pravin Gordhan, the BRPs at SAA are saying that you are unlawfully holding onto the funds which have been allocated to workers at SAA. If this is true, this is illegal and you must be fired!”
