sabcCity Press reports that, after finishing a first round of argument on Friday in the Labour Court against the employees it has fired, the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) will have to brace itself for another day in court on Thursday.  

Four of the so-called SABC8 – who were fired because they were critical of controversial editorial decisions at the public broadcaster – have already taken the SABC to court and are demanding they be reinstated in their positions and the disciplinary action against them be scrapped.  Judgment in this case, brought by Solidarity, is expected on Tuesday.  Meanwhile, another three of the SABC8, namely Lukhanyo Calata, Busisiwe Ntuli and Thandeka Gqubule, will have their day in court on Thursday.  The Broadcasting, Electronic, Media, and Allied Workers’ Union (BEMAWU) will be representing them.
