Presentations:

One of the key resolutions the NMMU Council on 21 November 2015 was its commitment to outsourced workers in the service fields of catering, cleaning, protection services, and gardening.

In line with the University’s values, NMMU agreed to reintegrate these services and the 800-plus staff members, and offered some immediate benefits. These benefits are:

  • The topping up of salaries to a minimum of R5000 cost to company
  • Access to staff study benefits
  • Access to clinic services

To support the introduction of these benefits, information sessions will be held for these future NMMU employees over the next few days, starting today, Monday 18 January.

Task team

To facilitate the challenges that lie ahead in reintegrating large numbers of individuals from many different companies which are still contractually bound to the University, a task team was formed last year and an initial meeting held.

A second meeting was held earlier this month, facilitated by an independent chairperson, Advocate  Luvuyo Bono to plot an agreed way forward.

The task team consists of representatives of the various companies, #FeesMustFall students, unions, SRC representatives and NMMU staff members.

CTC Helpdesk

 

A special helpdesk will be introduced to assist employees affected by the changes. Details of this will be communicated.
