SAFPU Claims Victory Over Alleged Unfair Dismissal Matters!

The South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) is claiming victory over alleged contractual matters involving Swallows FC. 

Earlier this season, following the technical team adjustments at the GladAfrica Championship side when Zeca Marques was replaced by Brandon Truter, a number of players were affected by the changes as they were deemed surplus to requirements in the team.

SAFPU have now confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Swallows for the settlement of the alleged outstanding salaries for the 11 players in question, following a PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber ruling. 

SAFPU deputy general secretary, Calvin Motloung, told the Siya crew, “We have finalised the matter and we won the case on the 19th of this month. The issue there was unfair dismissals of player after the arrival of the club’s current coach (Brandon) Truter last year. I was dealing with the matter of 11 players.

“We have been negotiating with the club about the settlement, because the players were offered one-month salaries. Imagine how disappointing that was, as the players had contracts running up to June this year. We ended up taking the matter to the PSL DRC as we were not getting any co-operation. We dealt with the matter and we won, and the guys (players) will get their salaries for the remaining months of their contracts.”  

As confirmed by Motloung, some of players due to be paid are Nathaniel Tladi, Themba Mavundla, Sanele Queface, Vincent Sithole, Filipe Goncalves, Silindokuhle Mponzo, Deveraux Springbok, Teboho Sodi and Sizwe Nkosi.
