ASIFUNI CAPACITY OUTSOURCING !!

The Capacity Workers Support Committee fully supports the struggle and demands of GIWUSA members in relation to Capacity Outsourcing based at TNPC, Sauer Street, Johannesburg. We supported the last demonstration organized by GIWUSA and we hoped that management will improve the situation of workers, but it seems not.

CAPACITY OUTSOURCING: AN OPPRESSOR OF WORKERS

The managers of Capacity Outsourcing have no respect for the constitutional right of workers to belong to a trade union of their choice. The managers also have no respect for agreements entered into with GIWUSA.

Capacity Outsourcing based at TNPC has embarked upon a campaign of intimidation, harassment and victimization of members of GIWUSA. Workers are told that they need to resign from GIWUSA. Workers are made to understand that as long as they belong GIWUSA there will be no peace for them at TNPC.

Recently GIWUSA signed an agreement with Capacity Outsourcing. This agreement, amongst other things, states that the market street roster must be implemented according to the DS number, that is the date of employment. The management have basically ignored this agreement, called workers individually to sign for a performance based market street roster. This they did behind the back of the Union and implemented the performance based market street roster and thereby violating the agreement. The agreement also states that four female comrades must be made part of the core staff on day-shift. Again the management ignored this agreement and sent these comrades home regularly.

THIRD SUSPENSION OF SHOP STEWARD

Now Capacity Oursourcing has suspended the shop steward, Bongani Ntuli and his alleged crime is the unauthorized entry of the Union official. The Union official attended a meeting with union members. This suspension comes after notices for the meeting were posted on the notice boards, a letter was written to the management about the meeting and the security guard granted access to the premises. And this is the normal procedure followed for all previous union meetings. We know that this is the third time that this particular shop steward has been targeted and suspended by Capacity Outsourcing management.

There are other agreements signed with Capacity Outsourcing that the management undermine and violate. This is an employer that is not interested in respecting workers’ rights and agreements.

VIOLATION OF WORKERS” RIGHTS: THE ACTIONS OF A LABOUR BROKER

Workers have come to expect this kind of behaviour of Capacity Outsourcing because it is a labour broker. A labour broker creates no value, it lives off the workers. The monies paid to Capacity Outsourcing by the client, TNPC, really belong to the workers. Capacity Outsourcing found the workers at TNPC, took them over and manage them for TNPC. A labour broker,in order to manage workers, has to instill fear into workers, threatened with dismissals and undermine their rights.

Workers at TNPC had enough of this exploiter and oppressor !!

TNPC, the client, AN ACCOMPLICE ?

GIWUSA has raised all these problems with TNPC, the client of Capacity Outsourcing. TNPC has ignored the calls from GIWUSA to deal with these problems. TNPC has ignored the calls from GIWUSA to have a meeting to deal with this violator of workers’ rights and agreements.

Workers are now demanding that TNPC fires Capacity Outsourcing and employs them permanently. Nothing less than the removal of Capacity Outsourcing from TNPC will create an environment where workers’ rights are respected.

We are not sure why TNPC, a producer of newspapers, uses an oppressor of workers, a violator of workers constitutional right to belong to a trade union of their choice. Unless TNPC shows concretely that it does not tolerate this kind of oppression of workers by its labour broker, we take it that TNPC supports the actions of Capacity Outsourcing. Unless TNPC shows by clear actions that it condemns this kind of oppression of workers, we take it is an accomplice.

We call on TNPC management to listen to the demand of workers to fire Capacity Outsourcing and to employ them permanently.
