Mwasa's bargaining rights have been reinstated at the SABC after an absence of more than a year, the union said on Thursday.

“The parties acknowledge that rebuilding trust lost over 13 months of acrimonious relations will require substantial political will,” said spokesman Tuwani Gumani.

Chief executive Lulama Mokhobo made the announcement on Thursday, said Gumani.

The Cosatu-affiliated Communication Workers Union is the majority union at the public broadcaster.

The Media Workers Association of SA lost bargaining rights due to a decline in its membership. - Sapa
