The controversy surrounding the Sylvania Metals sexual harassment claims is still ongoing. Despite an internal investigation exonerating a senior manager of sexual harassment claims, Numsa has filed a complaint with the CCMA against the individual.
According to EWN, Numsa has given the management of Sylvania Metals a seven-day ultimatum to respond to allegations of sexual harassment directed at a senior manager.
Expressing their frustrations over the purported harassment of a female employee, the union held a picket outside the company’s Roodepoort offices on Tuesday.
While the internal probe cleared the manager of wrongdoing, Numsa has urged the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation, and Arbitration to step in.
Numsa’s spokesperson, Phakamile Hlubi-Majola, stated, “His actions have caused immense distress to the worker. She is suffering from emotional trauma caused by the incident, and it has affected her work.”
“In the meantime, he must be suspended immediately pending the outcome of the independent investigations so that he cannot tamper with witnesses.”
