We do not recognise Solidarity, ICTU, and NUMSA

Telkom said The Alliance, consisting of Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) and the South African Communication Union (SACU), is the only union it recognises.

The company said in an internal email that The Alliance is the only recognised entity for purposes of organisational and collective bargaining rights at Telkom.

I don't care about the others but they should recognise Solidarity now or Afriforum will go around the world telling everyone that minorities are being oppressed. We cannot afford this.

They have the 30% policy and Solidarity knows about it

What is this hard on you have for Afriforum comrade? Did they chase you away at the gate with your Bell Pottinger style begging bowl?

You yourself said they only protect Afrikaner rights. Don't you recognize minority rights?

I don't really know what this needed a news article.
Telkom have their representation percentage for recognition and those unions don't meet it. Simple.

OK... so here we have it: A company run and majority owned by the Struggle establishment, you know, the pro worker socialist people liberating us from the capitalist, excluding pretty important unions - and at the same time blaming their disastrous management on "technology".
One looks at Africa and one wonders why one is so depressed...

Telkom can die for all I care.
Let them just last till we get the satellite broadband stuff then I will join the celebration for their crash cause the fibre kants don't want to extend about three streets to where I am and Rain sucks like a old time second hand car salesman. Telkom is my only half decent choice st the moment.

It always makes me cringe when I hear people like Eusebius comment on Afriforum.

Or when people say they only represent a specific demographic.

I am not their biggest fan but you can't deny some of the work they have done. Regardless of it being politically motivated or not, they are helping people that wouldn't normally have access to legal services.

They are also trying to hold the state accountable. I see the current government as being untouchable & corruption just destroying this country.

I would rather have somebody try to make a noticeable difference then give in & accept being a cash cow.

Who do you think will continue challenging Etolls and the new AARTO changes? OUTA and the likes of Afriforum.

Im gonna to leave this here. Maybe someday people will open their eyes & also realise the hypocrisy in labelling them an afrikaans interest group.

Afriforum hasn't realised that the rest of the world don't give a damn.

I pretty much think, if this was the case, they would not have bothered going abroad. In all fairness, Afriforum do have access to the US government structures while the US Government this far refused any meetings with the ANC other than referring them to the local embassy.

In addition to this, Afriforum has done great work in both the UK, Netherlands and Australian governments focusing attention on important issues. I almost think the Netherlands just recently announced that the ANC will be summoned to explain their stance on EWC.
