The SABC has been ordered to reinstate a dismissed employee and pay her compensation of almost R180 000.
Ms Sepei Shole was employed by the SABC on several consecutive contracts. The renewal of her contract came up in December 2018, and despite having full knowledge of the repetitive renewals and an undertaking by management to appoint her permanently, Human Resources decided to terminate her contract.
BEMAWU referred a dispute and the matter was arbitrated by the CCMA.
On 16 October 2019 Commissioner Zwane found in favor of the Applicant, Ms Shole ordering the SABC to appoint her permanently and pay her compensation.
BEMAWU will continue to defend its members in all unfair conduct by employers.
