The University of Free State protest finally ends because demands are met

The Contract workers at the University of the Free State ended their week-long protest on Thursday after the university met their demands.

The University of Free State  management briefed them in the morning and promised to meet all their demands regarding all their concerns.

Trevor Shaku, of the students and workers forum, said workers would resume their duties on Monday.

Trevor Shaku said “once the workers’ contracts expired, the university would employ them directly by July 2017, every worker would be insourced”.

One of the workers at the University of Free State, Vuyani Maseti, said he could now enjoy working at the university.

Vuyani Maseti  also went on to add that  “we were in pain, but now our cries have been heard. This is the best news I have ever heard”.

Sandile Baleni said his life would change for the better.

“I am glad everyone’s demands have been met. It was hectic but we are going to enjoy the the fruits of our struggle.”

University spokesperson Lacea Loader said they would issue a statement later.
