Generations saga: Vavi to the rescue?

2014-09-04 10:00


It seems the fired Generations actors will stop at nothing to get what they deserve.

The 16 cast members were axed last month after going on strike and demanding salary increases, among other things. The actors, which include Sophie Ndaba, Katlego Danke and Patrick Shai, have tried desperately to find a solution - even meeting with the minister of Arts and Culture. They still haven't been reinstated.

Now, there seems to be another option for the actors. They met with Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi yesterday. After meeting with the actors, Vavi tweeted: "Coming out of a meeting with generations artists on strike who have been dismissed for demanding what they worth." He then tweeted a picture of pregnant Katlego Danke with the caption: "Katlego or Dineo amongst the 16 artists dismissed - she was dismissed even though on maternity leave."

He added that COSATU National Office Bearers (NOBs) have agreed to intervene.
