The current illegal strike action over the suspension by NUMSA of certain Shop Stewards has now dragged on for two weeks despite numerous appeals for employees, to return to work. Over this time, the Company has lost millions of rands, employees have lost income and our export and local customers have lost faith in VWSA. The message we are sending the word is that Uitenhage does not value exports and jobs.
Over 2000 jobs at VWSA and many thousands more in the region are now dependent on our export business and unless this strike ends immediately, this business will be lost and also the jobs of the employees. The consequences for Uitenhage and all its residents will be disastrous. We appeal to all VWSA employees to return to normal work immediately to avoid these consequences.
ANY EMPLOYEE WHO HAS NOT REPORTED TO THE PLANT FOR DUTY BY THE START OF NORMAL SHIFTS ON THURSDAY, 3rd FEBRUARY, 2000 WILL BE DISMISSED.
NO FURTHER WARNINGS OR ULTIMATUMS WILL BE GIVEN.
The Company intends to take disciplinary action against all employees identified as taking part in misconduct during the strike. This ultimatum does not constitute a waiver by the Company of the right to do so.
ISSUED BY THE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT ON TUESDAY, 1st FEBRUARY, 2000
