Huawei and Dpt of Labour in talks

FOLLOWING A report we carried on Huawei Technologies SA flouting Labour Laws, it seems sanity has prevailed.

We reported that the mobile giant has been accused for having employed more foreign nationals than locals and, by law this is unconstitutional, according to the department of Employment and Labour.

 Now it seems the department and Huawei Technologies South Africa (Pty) Ltd, have entered into talks to reach a settlement agreement and have agreed to stay court proceedings instituted by the department against Huawei on 11 February 2022 pending the outcome of the negotiations, according to the press statement released by the PR team.

“During the meeting, Huawei demonstrated its extensive ICT skills transfer and training programs that are aimed at reducing the ICT skills gap and fostering a strong digital talent ecosystem for South Africa to further embrace 5G, Cloud, AI and other 4IR technologies,” continued the press release. 

“This was acknowledged by the Department of Employment and Labour who advised Huawei to expand this further in their Employment Equity plan. 

Huawei is committed to being fully cooperative with the Department, and both sides are positive that this matter will be concluded shortly,” said the media release.

Discussions are still ongoing confirmed the mobile giant’s.
