Bargaining: Workers Speak out – Cut off their heads!

“We need to strengthen ourselves and cut the labour broker and retrenchment monster’s head off,” says Veronica Mofokeng, a motor worker from Bethlehem Delta from Numsa’s Bethlehem local.

Numsa is approaching serious issues which cannot be defeated easily – the outsourcing to labour brokers, as well as retrenchment. We need to strengthen ourselves and cut this monster’s head. If you check you will find that most companies enjoy that system because they don’t lose a single cent from their pockets.

Out of 15 to 20 workers, only three workers are registered, the rest are outsourced which impacts negatively on those workers. Some were not aware of the situation, they only discovered when Numsa is taking part.
