Players Finally Paid After Boycott & Call To SAFPU

After boycotting training and putting in a call to the South African Football Players Union, Cape Town All Stars’ players have been paid what they were owed.
 
The Siya crew reported recently that the NFD side, who are currently 12th, were in such bad financial shape that they apparently couldn’t afford to top up their electricity meters, and that the DSTV satellite dishes at the club house have allegedly been disconnected.
 
SAFPU have since explained that there was a boycott by the players, but that there now seems to be some movement forward after they stepped in to help.
 
Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, SAFPU’s General Secretary, confirmed that the players were paid after they stepped in, saying, “Yes, we met up with the players after they made us aware of their problems at Cape Town All Stars. They boycotted training from Tuesday, but after meeting with them we can safely say they got paid on Friday.
 
“We went down to Cape Town to discuss these issues with them. We must say we are happy with the unity that they displayed and made sure their voices are heard. It must be said that this is not good at all for the image of football in the country and on the continent.”
 
He added, “Despite the payments, all other issues that the players raised would be taken up with the club to avoid such delays which result in inhumane treatment of players. The unity of players can take us far in fighting for their rights. We must always remember that players are workers and are also protected by the Labour Relations Act.
 
“The issue of working conditions is key and fundamental to a conducive environment which will allow players to discharge their responsibilities with ease.”
 
“We call on all players to emulate what Cape Town All Stars players did in standing together for a common purpose,” he concluded. “For there is strength in unity. And no one else but the players can change the status quo, and indeed one is humbled by the unity displayed by the players in this trying times. The players must continue to organize themselves as a class for themselves.”
