The call was made yesterday by Sport and Recreation Department workers who were protesting, calling for the axing of a director accused of abusing and victimising staff.
They said it was about time the department took action against the director, who allegedly victimised a female colleague until she was admitted to a psychiatric centre for three weeks in June.
They have been meeting downstairs on Queen Street to picket and calling for intervention since Monday. Their attempts to exhaust assistance from the bargaining council proved futile, they said.
Chairperson of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union in the department Bethuel Maake said the bargaining council advised that the matter should be resolved internally. However, they felt that management wasn’t willing to act.
