Johannesburg - The Communications Workers Union is expected to brief the media on its position regarding various topics including the recent controversies at the South African Broadcasting Corporation and COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng on Tuesday in Braamfontein.

The union will also brief the media about its position regarding cellular network MTN and outstanding labour issues between the CWU and South African Post Office.

Motsoeneng has drawn criticism following the charging of three SABC journalists with misconduct after they reportedly expressed their opposition to Motsoeneng's orders not to cover an anti-censorship march outside the SABC offices in Johannesburg. Four more journalists have since been charged.
