effEWN reports that according to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), it is in the process of drafting legislation to end the outsourcing of all government workers at local, provincial and national level.  

Earlier this year, the EFF successfully tabled a motion in which it pushed for the City of Johannesburg to insource all its contract workers, including security guards, cleaners, refusal removal workers, drivers and all general workers.  The motion resulted in 1,600 security guards being directly hired by the city with effect from 1 July.  The EFF's Sixolise Gcilishe said the party was proud of this achievement and added:  “We reiterate our call to all government entities from national level to local level to insource staff.”
