Truck drivers at Manline Freight are worried they could lose their jobs after the company informed them of its proposal to retrench some of its workforce in a bid to stay afloat.

Manline Freight managing director Elvis Rabohale wrote to employees informing them of the predicament the company finds itself in and explained how this could affect them.

Rahobale said that Covid-19 pandemic induced National State of Disaster and lockdown regulations in South Africa and worldwide has slowed down the business for the company.

In response to the loss of revenue, Manline Freight last week announced that they suspend both the employee and employer contributions to the Group’s Retirement Funds for a period of 12 months from the 1st of May 2020.

Should retrenchments become unavoidable, Rahobale said 48 employees will likely be affected out of a total of 312 the company currently has.

Rahobale concluded by assuring employees that Manline Freight would act in good faith throughout the consultation process and seriously consider any proposals by the employees.
