Groenewald, Mr IM to ask the Minister of Employment and Labour

Whether, with reference to the reply to question 1057 on 19 June 2020, and the fact that most municipalities do not apply the principle of no-work-no-pay, resulting in unprotected illegal strikes, the Government engaged with the trade unions to protect the taxpayers and ensure that they receive value for money for taxes and rates that they pay by allowing municipal employees to rather claim from the Unemployment Insurance Fund during the period of lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19 in line with other citizens who are on a no-work-no-pay arrangement; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?


Minister of Employment and Labour was neither asked nor replied to Question 1057 on 19 June 2020.
