Dennis George Placed on Precautionary Suspension

28 February 2019

The Leadership of the Federation of Unions of South Africa (FEDUSA), after staging its National Executive Committee (NEC) in Johannesburg on 26 February, collectively resolved to place General Secretary, Dennis George on precautionary suspension, following the initial special leave provisions implemented on 06 February 2019, and pending an external investigation.

This decision comes in the wake of allegations relating to the acquisition of shares in technology company, AYO Technology Systems.

In remaining steadfast to the principles of accountability, and the continued promotion of good, clean, ethical governance, FEDUSA initiated an independent, external investigation to determine the veracity of the allegations. The investigation remains ongoing.

The recommendations arising out of the investigation by FEDUSA will be communicated to all interested and affected parties, in line with the principles of good corporate governance, that FEDUSA will continue to uphold and promote.
