Workers threaten to disrupt Nedbank Challenge

More than a thousand Sun City workers affiliated to Cosatu in the North West have vowed to disrupt the Nedbank Challenge golf tournament to be held at the holiday resort from Thursday, SABC radio reported.

This emerged during a meeting the workers held with Sun International management late on Tuesday afternoon.

The workers are demanding the immediate termination of contracts of two security companies, accusing them of racism, and the dismissal of a manager.

They intend to disrupt the Nedbank Challenge by blockading the main entrance to the resort and stop any use of scab labour.

Sun International intends to apply for a court interdict to prevent the workers from going ahead with their industrial action. — Sapa
