Pretoria - Government must take action against abusive and powerful directors before they run offices of public service into the ground.
This call was made on Wednesday by public servants who left the comfort of their offices in the Department of Sports, Arts, Culture and Recreation and took to the streets to demand action against an alleged abusive director.
These motivated workers said it was about time the department took action against the director who allegedly victimised a colleague until she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for three weeks.
They have been taking to the streets to picket and to call for intervention since Monday after attempts to exhaust assistance from the bargaining council proved fruitless.
Chairperson of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) in the department Bethuel Maake said the bargaining council advised that the matter should be resolved internally but management hasn’t acted.
