Dear NEASA member

It has come to our attention that some members received requests from unions to release employees in order to partake in protest action on 1 August 2018.

This protest action has not been approved by NEDLAC in terms of the Labour Relations Act and therefore it will be within the employer’s discretion whether to release employees or not.

Please also note that:

• should employees be released it will be on a ‘no work, no pay’ basis; and
• employees who partake in this protest action without approval from management may be disciplined for unauthorized absenteeism.

NEASA members can contact our HOTLINE on 086 016 3272 for any queries in this regard.

Kind Regards,

Jaco Swart
