sabcEWN reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has announced it would not be going ahead with plans to retrench employees.  

The public broadcaster released a statement on Thursday afternoon saying it had decided not to renew the notice to invoke Section 189 of the Labour Relations Act, which permits companies to retrench employees and sets out the process as to how that must be done.  Last year, the broadcaster introduced extreme cost-cutting measures.  It also proposed the retrenchments of 981 permanent staffers and over 1,200 freelancers.
