Strike delays social grants in E Cape

Johannesburg - Payments to the beneficiaries of social grants were delayed in the Eastern Cape after Fidelity security workers embarked on an unprotected strike, a report said on Tuesday.

Fidelity transports money to Cash Payment Services (CPS) paypoints across the cities but on Monday, the services were delayed by hours as workers downed tools demanding a wage increase, the DispatchOnline reported.

The strike affected beneficiaries in East London and Queenstown.

According to the online publication, payments were only made after Fidelity hired other people to transport money.

The strikers told the publication they resorted to a strike because the process of resolving their matter by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration was stalling.

Fidelity Security Group CEO Wahl Bartman confirmed the workers were striking and that the company deployed other people to do the job.

He said the strike was unprotected, the DispatchOnline reported.
