Sun City workers to mull offer

Nov 27 2012 18:52
ohannesburg - Sun City workers will be consulted about a offer made by their employer on the payment of unpaid overtime, tips and public holiday allowances, Cosatu North West said on Tuesday.

Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) provincial secretary Solly Phetoe said Sun City had agreed to make a payment early next month of amounts owed for the period 2009 to the end of October this year.

Workers were demanding back-pay for the past 15 years.

North West government spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele previously said that, in a memorandum handed to the premier on October 16, workers claimed they were owed R26m.

Phetoe said plans to disrupt the Nedbank Golf Challenge had been suspended pending feedback from the workers.

He said Sun International had also agreed to drop disciplinary procedures against workers who had participated in a Cosatu rally.

"I am confident that workers, who have been fighting [for the outstanding pay] for some years, will feel satisfied [with the offer]."

Sun City officials, Cosatu, and the province's economic development and finance MECs met last week.

Sun International was not immediately able for comment on Tuesday.
