THE SA Democratic Teachers' Union claims more than 200 teachers from Further Education and Training colleges in KwaZulu-Natal have been retrenched.
The union said 250 permanent and contract teachers at FET colleges in the province had their jobs terminated on December 2.
"How are these colleges going to operate next year with only a skeleton staff?" asked Sadtu provincial spokesperson Mbuyiseni Mathonsi.
Provincial education department spokesperson Mbali Thusi said no permanent staff at any FET college had been retrenched. - Sne Masuku
