CPUTEWN reports that striking workers at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) say that, while their frustrations with management are mounting, they will not take drastic action as they wait for a response concerning their grievances.  

The staff members are demanding wage and housing subsidy increases.  On Friday, strikers threatened to shut down the institution.   University management held a meeting on Friday, but the joint union task team said it hadn’t received any feedback.  Spokesperson Ben Turner stated:  “We are not going to do anything that is irresponsible to the institution or our workers.  Management has decided to take strong action against us, but we’ll see what that entails and take the matter forward.”
