CPUT agrees to insource its workers

The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) has agreed to insource its workers.


The workers signed pre-contracts on July 31, making them permanent CPUT employees from January 1, 2018. The pre-contract also stated that finalised contracts would be given to the workers on or before August 31, and that their payslips would be available on August 25.

CPUT spokesperson Lauren Kansley said: "Yesterday, insourced workers signed pre-contracts which cemented CPUT’s commitment to provide formal contracts by the end of August.

"Furthermore, Council also committed to monitoring the insourcing process more regularly."

The letter sent to the students and workers from CPUT management referred to the court cases against the charged Fees Must Fall students.

The letter stated: "The University Management remains committed to the well-being of all our students and cares deeply for those facing charges at this time."

The letter also assured the students that CPUT management would write "comprehensive letters of motivation" to the court to allow all charged students to complete their studies.
