The new public protector says she will leave the dispute over the state capture report prepared by h.
A PLANNED strike by SABC workers was averted yesterday when management gave an undertaking to increase its wage hike offer to 10percent.
The public broadcaster originally offered 8,5percent while the unions were demanding 12,2percent. Workers were yesterday promised an extra 1,5percent.
SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said the corporation would refer the matter to Communications Minister Siphiwe Nyanda for approval "because there is no board at the SABC".
Union representatives said workers were eager to accept the latest offer though it was below their initial demand.
Ernest Dlamini of the Media Workers' Association of SA said most workers would accept the improved offer.
Vulture Ntuluki of the Communication Workers' Union also said the new offer would be accepted on condition that workers approved.
Starting tomorrow, workers will picket against poor management.
