The Midlands State University (MSU) is retrenching 34 workers in the catering department saying this is due to a downsizing programme.
A letter to the workers read: “Reference is made to the meeting of August 3, 2021 to inform members of staff in the catering services department that the university is now at the implementation stage of the restructuring and retrenchment exercise.
“The following packages were presented at the meeting, which are voluntary retrenchment and early retirement,” part of the letter to the workers dated August 4, 2021, read.
“This communication, therefore, is meant to invite individuals to express their interest in the preferred option. On submission of application, the human resources section will avail further information to individual applicants.”
Workers were given up to Friday last week to make their choices.
