sactwuCape Argus reports that the Cape Town city council has been given 15 days to file an answering affidavit in the Western Cape High Court in response to an urgent interdict being sought by the Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (Sactwu).  

The union is seeking to stop the leasing of the Good Hope Centre as a film studio and wants the court to restrain the council from making any more structural changes to the centre, arguing they might be irreversible and make the space unsuitable for public events.  It is the union’s contention that the council did not follow the necessary procedure before taking the decision to close the centre for public use.  In its interdict application, Sactwu said the safety and security of last year’s Spring Queen Pageant had been affected by the closure of the Good Hope Centre.
