National Day of Action 7 October 2021
It has come to our attention that COSATU is calling on different forms of protest action for the 7th of October 2021. This protest action / stayaway is protected as COSATU has follow all necessary procedures in terms of Section 77 of the LRA.
What does this mean to the Employer?
Any protest action that complies with the provisions of the Labour Relations Act protects employees from disciplinary action for \'unauthroised absence\', however, there is protection to the employer as well. The employer is not forced to pay the employee who is not at work due to the protest action o/ stayaway or where an employee partakes in the protest action. Therefore the rule no work no pay will apply where employees are absent from work.
