CCMABusinessLive reports that just over a year into his term as director of the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), Cameron Morajane has been accused by some subordinates of creating a hostile work environment.  

Along with some of his newly appointed senior managers, Morajane is facing an employee revolt at the labour dispute resolution agency’s headquarters in Johannesburg after allegations of purges, mismanagement and victimisation.  The CCMA governing body launched a probe into complaints after the staffers reported their grievances to Deputy Labour Minister Nkosi Patekile Holomisa.  Dissatisfied workers have submitted dozens of pages in complaints, including wasteful expenditure, pay disparities and purging.  The aggrieved employees have also claimed that the entity has lost a sizeable number of its senior commissioners due to resignations.  The staffers said they found it ironic that an institution meant to protect labour rights of all workers had become a nightmare to work for.  The CCMA has denied the allegations and assertions.
