VEREENIGING: This morning, Thursday the 17th of March 2022, some Stats SA field workers assembled at the Vereeniging Post Office and marched to the Stats SA offices in Leslie Street over unpaid salaries.
According to reports, the District Manager, Mr Vilikazi took down the names of the employees who did not receive their salaries and escalated the issue to Head Office. He promised that they will receive their February salaries within the next few days. The employees stated that they will not resume work until the February salaries are paid in.
Protests of this kind are happening in many different cities. Stats SA is promising to resolve the issue by the end of the month.
