ACDP’s involvement in the Wayne Prins CCMA Matter
The ACDP has noted some skepticism about its involvement in the CCMA settlement agreement entered between Mr Wayne Prins and his employer on Thursday the 10th March 2022 in Cape Town.
From the onset, since the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, the ACDP has been at the forefront of activism in this regard. The ACDP was responsible, together with other applicants in a number of litigations, for forcing government and SAHPRA to roll out Ivermectin as an alternative treatment for Covid-19.
The ACDP is currently in court, challenging the needless experimental rollout of children’s vaccination at school matter which has been set down for the end of April.
The ACDP has led demonstrations throughout the country calling for amongst others, vaccination mandates to end as they are unconstitutional.
Accordingly, the ACDP has pledged to assist many South Africans, notwithstanding membership of the party, with fighting their employers who force them to vaccinate against their will.
It is through this pledge and commitment, that Mr Prins approached the ACDP for assistance when he was unfairly dismissed for insisting on his rights which are sacrosanct.
The ACDP commissioned its lawyer, NEC Member, Mr Bongani Luthuli, to assist Mr Prins with his legal challenge.
The ACDP fully funded and supported Mr Prins with his referral. Although not a party to this dispute on record, the ACDP played a prominent role in the matter.
Mr Prins’ victory through his settlement is therefore the ACDP’s victory, it is the people’s victory, and a righteous victory.
The ACDP will continue to fight all gross violations committed against employees until it prevails and justice as well as the rule of law takes preeminence again through section 23 of the Constitution which guarantees the right to fair labour practices.
