CWU general secretary Aubrey Tshabalala threatened the public broadcaster with a blackout on Friday, and said a shutdown would continue through the next week if retrenchments went ahead.

This threat remains on the table as the unions and SABC continue negotiations.

Unions also plan to combat the retrenchments in labour court, arguing that the problems at the SABC do not stem from its general staff.
All talk of hollow threats, and no action.

Cut everybody's inflated salary by 50% like the rest of SA and you can keep the 400. No need to talk about it, just do it.✔

AND only 15 annual leave days and no cashing in of annual leave and 36 days sick leave over a 3 year cycle.

That tube is really a closed loop, SOEs in general are perpetually orbiting around the proverbial crapper (aka Luthuli House) in their respective "tubes".
Yet the citizens always get the lube

More like tax payers regularly get taken for a rough ride without any lube, the most recent example being SAA bailed out yet again even when it makes more sense to save other SOEs instead of SAA which the ANC has only ever used for corrupt BEE deals.

SABC employees missed their opportunity to go on strike when TitO announced he was throwing R10.5b down the SAA crapper.

Much the same with other SOEs: only the ANC wants SAA and its likely that at least some SAA employees would have been absorbed by other airlines.

Well this is interesting, flicked to sabc3 news.
The last 5 minutes or so has been the newsroom singing it's own praises - almost like the staff have commandeered the newsroom for their own purposes
