Pretoria - Temporary lecturers at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) who made sworn statements about their not being paid, are to be disciplined by the institution, Beeld reported on Wednesday.

The TUT decided to do so because they allegedly brought the university's public image into disrepute, according to the report.

The lecturers, who taught in the department of applied languages in the social sciences faculty, had previously had their case referred to the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

The CCMA issued a strike certificate. In statements to the National Prosecuting Authority in March, the lecturers said they had struggled since 2011 to get paid.

Stanley Mukhola, dean of the humanities faculty, was accused of repeatedly refusing to sign the complainants' salary demands.

The amounts allegedly owed varied between R21 000 and R35 000 per individual.

The TUT said in a statement on Tuesday that the lecturers concerned were paid according to the terms of contracts they had signed. In some cases, they had worked hours over and above those prescribed by official policy.

The dean had agreed to pay them, in addition to the 19 hours per week they could claim for, for additional preparation as well as a two-hour consultation fee.
