EFF Embarks On Protest Against SASSA & Dept of Labour
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has started protesting against SASSA and decisions they have made concerning providing financial support to South Africans during the pandemic. They are calling this the 'EFF Labour Desk March' as they march to the Department of Labour and SASSA offices.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has started protesting against SASSA and the Department of Labour to demand that they pay workers their R350 grants and Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (TERS) payments.
The EFF Labour March is to demand that, among other things, workers are paid the R350 Unemployment Insurance Relief and to ensure that workers receive Temporary Employer Relief Scheme (TERS) pay-outs claimed on their behalf of the employers.

They are calling this the 'EFF Labour Desk March' as they march to the Department of Labour and SASSA offices to make demands for workers in South Africa. They have said, "we carry collective capacity that will fundamentally change the state of our country."
EFF Head of the Labour Desk Commissar, Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi, leads the march. Mkhalihphi will hand over a list of demands. Protesters assembled at Church Square in Pretoria.
This action from the EFF comes as a result of any workers stating that they have not received their funds or that employers were keeping the funds and not disbursing them as they should.
This is the party's latest efforts to display what their new Labour Desk is capable of, reports Political Analysis. The labour desk will be intervening in all labour-related issues to protect the lives and dignity of workers.
The EFF will never deviate from taking up the struggle for the betterment of the lives of our people. We are ready to confront the Department of Labour and the people at SASSA. THEY MUST PAY.
- Julius Malema, EFF President
The EFF confidently says, "Nothing will ever stop us from executing the task we have committed to. There's no rain that will ever stop the revolution."
Another EFF event took place yesterday as Malema and Mkhalihphi visited Pharmacy Direct CEO Gavie Erasmus concerning the issue of workers not being paid their TERS fund. Following the visit, Pharmacy Direct agreed to return the Covid-19 UIF funds. Pharmacy Direct workers would also individually claim from the UIF.
It was said that when workers confronted the CEO about the TERS funds, they were met with " disdain and sheer white racist arrogance", said EFF national spokesperson Vuyani Pambo.
“We further call on all workers across the country to contact the EFF to alert us of companies that have not paid the UIF and we will pay them a special warm visit," said Pambo.
