Cell C employees who form part of the Information Communication Technology Union (ICTU) are currently engaged in protest action outside the operator’s head office in Woodmead, Johannesburg.

The protest comes as a result of alleged non-payment of bonuses according to a statement by Cell C.

“This relates to bonus payments made in 2018 for work-related performance in 2017. Cell C is engaging with the ICTU leadership and its members to work towards a positive outcome,” Cell C said of the protest action.

A report by ENCA yesterday which featured an interview with Sebotane Lehokahoke, an ICTU shop steward, suggests that Cell C management promised workers a 25 percent bonus.

“Plans to minimise disruptions to both Cell C’s business and its service to customers are in place. As a business Cell C respects the rights of its unionised employees to take part in a peaceful strike,” Cell C concluded.
