"The ultimate measures of a man is not where he stands in the moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” Martin Luther, Jr.

The South African nation is standing on a precipice – We can either rise or perish. Corona has changed the world as we know it but through this pandemic an opportunity has presented itself to us as we were offered a one year learnership program of which enhanced our career development and the status quo in our families.

 As Hotline learners we’re worried about the impact of the short term extension of the contract on the ability to earn an income and provide for our families. It is with peace and stability in mind that we as the hotline learners propose amendments to the existing extension to ensure the learners get back to work during our most trying time as a country.

We request the extension of the contract based on the statement given during the Gauteng Provincial Budget made by the Gauteng Finance MEC Nomantu Nkomo-Ralehoko on the 2021/2022 budget speech in the provincial legislature on Thursday the 11th March 2021. The statement made by the MEC reads as follows: “Similarly, a once-off allocation of R15 million will be made to the Office of the Premier, to provide the continuation of the contract of the learners that are staffing the COVID-19 Call Centre Hotline, which is an integral part of the response to the pandemic”.

We therefore hope that you could respond to us at your earliest convenience, if possible within the seven working days.

Best Regards

Gauteng Call Centre Hotline Learners
