About 300 support staff at Limpopo schools have complained that money is being deducted from their salaries unlawfully despite not having taken part in the public service strike in June.

This was revealed by the Public Servants Association (PSA) yesterday.

The association said support staff, including secretaries and groundsmen, had their July and August salaries cut though they reported for duty.

The PSA said money amounting to another 11 days would be deducted from their September salaries.

Limpopo Education Department's Ndo Mangala said the problem was being addressed.

Mangala said some of the affected workers had already been refunded. - Sapa
