Unpaid salaries
The federation says the dire economic climate and clients not having paid yet are not good enough reasons to not pay workers.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has raised concern over what it says is a growing number of employers in both the public and private sector that are failing to pay their employees’ salaries.

The federation says the dire economic climate as well as clients not having paid yet are not good enough reasons to not pay workers.

Cosatu general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali says there is also the issue of deductions on workers salaries that are not followed through.

There are employers who deduct from workers' salaries whatever contribution that they have to make, whether it is the UIF or retirement fund contribution, etc. It appears in their payslip and workers think they are covered only to find out that the money deducted has not been sent over.

Bheki Ntshalintshali, General secretary - Cosatu

We are asking workers, on their own, through their work steward, they need to verify that money has been sent where it is supposed to be sent.
