UCT services may be affected by labour march

11 April 2018 | Campus Announcement

Dear students and colleagues

On Thursday, 12 April 2018, the South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) will be marching to parliament. The planned march, which is legal in accordance with South African labour legislation, is not related to University of Cape Town matters, but rather national labour matters.

However, some UCT employees who are members of trade unions affiliated to Saftu might join the march in solidarity. There is, as a result, a possibility that certain UCT services might be impacted.

The Jammie Shuttle services might not run according to schedule, and we recommend that staff and students who use the bus service make alternative arrangements to get to campuses tomorrow. In the residences, cleaning and catering might also be affected, but Student Housing and Residence Life is making contingency plans.

Staff and students will be updated on any developments through the UCT News website and UCT Facebook and Twitter platforms.
