Johannesburg - The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) says it is aware that the group against outsourcing at the institution has threatened to resume protests at its campuses.

"We are aware of the rumours, but we have sufficient security in place and we are monitoring the situation," spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said.

All TUT campuses would be opened on Monday morning.

The institution had been monitoring the situation all weekend, and it had remained calm. It had also deployed sufficient security personnel to monitor the situation, she said.

An insourcing task team was expected to resume talks on Monday. De Ruyter said the task team had already done a lot of work since its establishment in December.

Eyewitness News reported on Monday that the #OutsourcingMustFall campaign vowed to resume protests if TUT management failed to fully uphold its agreement to insource workers.

According to the broadcaster, the two parties reached a consensus earlier this month that workers would be integrated within a three year period and that workers would earn a minimum of R5 000.

However, the movement said the university had failed to ensure that workers who participated in protests were protected from facing dismissal and victimisation.
