The 15th of January was reported to the start of registration week for first years, but then it was brought to a standstill when the staff members took to strike due to not being satisfied with the executive management.

The Durban University of Technology’s staff members have stopped all registration that was supposed to start this Monday, the staff members are not happy and state that what they get every month is not enough for their standard of living, and have the following demands: a 10% increase on their salary, R200 increase on their housing allowance and an increase on their yearly bonuses.

Three unions came together in union of the staff members, they marched from ML Sultan Campus all the way to the Steve Biko Campus to the Vice Chancellors office to be in negotiations with the executives. The rest of the staff members were sent home and required to come back tomorrow morning (Tuesday) at 08:30am.
