SABC should set aside Generations dismissals: Mwasa-

The SABC should set aside the dismissals of the Generations actors who went on strike, and restart negotiations, the Media Workers Association of SA (Mwasa) said on Tuesday.

"This sinister and cynical move comes after repeated failures by both the SABC and the production company MMSV to engage in bona fide negotiation processes to address recurrent contractual issues of mutual interest raised in good faith by the workers," general secretary Tuwani Gumani said in a statement.

"What we have here is yet another regrettable display of failed bargaining processes."

The SABC announced on Monday that 16 actors who had embarked on a strike had been fired.

The national broadcaster's spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said the termination followed a call by both parties for the actors to return for recordings.

The cast claimed that the broadcaster as well as the production company, had failed to deliver on promises it made to them during their strike last year.

The cast was reportedly promised three year contracts which they had not received.

They also wanted salary adjustments.

On Monday, the actors wrote an open letter to viewers and fans explaining why they embarked on a strike.

Mwasa said it supported the actors' demands for improved working conditions, for competitive remuneration, for the consideration of fair compensation regarding royalties, rebroadcasts, sales and syndication.

"It is our submission that the actors, the SABC and MMSV productions should urgently consider setting aside the dismissal and work on returning to the negotiation table," said Gumani.

"A facilitated process would yield better results."

GOOD ADVICE: do something for yourself, for your family. Don't waste your time talking politics while others are enjoying their lives with money without minding politics. See how this South African woman became very wealthy just by buying and selling old and broken houses in any town or city. Very interesting.

SABC is just a failure but appreciate the fact that they have now given us a chance to go watch other programmes in other channels and for those actors and actresses to go and explore in Isibaya, Scandal etc. Umfundi and SABC must just go to hell and hang.

It's very easy and convenient for you sitting on that comfortable chair and ridiculing these actors. No one just wake up to find job offers waiting for them. Even some former CEO's (an acquired skill considered indispensable and always sought after) do find themselves unemployed at some point in their lives. Finding acting roles in a small industry like SA's is not that easy.

Really? Strangely enough, I don't remember the cast of Friends having so much trouble finding other work. I thought that their brilliant acting abilities would have made it a simple matter to break into the big time.
